Texas Football: Longhorns QB David Ash out for spring with fractured foot

Charlie Strong was dealt his first big curveball as head coach of the Texas Longhorns as projected starting quarterback David Ash suffered a fracture in his left foot that will sideline him for the remainder of spring practice.

Ash, a rising senior, endured an injury-plagued junior season that limited to him to all but three games with multiple concussions. He began the season with a band with 348 yards and four touchdowns in the team’s win over New Mexico State and finished with seven touchdowns to only two interceptions with 760 yards on 60.9 percent passing.

Ash will undergo surgery this week and should be healthy in time to compete with rising sophomore Tyrone Swoopes for the starting quarterback job when fall camp begins.
