Offensive Coordinator Greg Davis does not intend to scale back his game-plan following Texas' 41-21…
McCoy Expected to Play Against OU
"They ran some tests on me," McCoy said, "and everything came out fine. It matched up with the results I took before the season started. I'm really not that concerned about it."
At the same time, DE Brian Orakpo is listed on the depth chart for the first time since suffering a knee injury in the home-opener. The junior is mentioned as a co-starter with sophomore Lamarr Houston.
"He was up, running around last week. We're hopeful," said Defensive Coordinator Duane Akina about Orakpo.
SLB Sergio Kindle, alongside RS-freshman Dustin Earnest, is listed as a backup to starting SLB Robert Killebrew. RT Adam Ulatoski, who came up limping again vs. the Wildcats, is listed as a co-starter with sophomore Chris Hall. But Monday depth charts should be considered a fluid document until the official trainer's report is released late Thursday, head coach Mack Brown has cautioned on several occasions.
"(Medical trainers) may tell us a player can practice, but he's limited," Brown said. "I have to sit with my assistant coaches and figure out what that means. We may be told that a player can run but he can't hit."
Colt McCoy was taken to the locker room just before halftime Saturday before returning for the third quarter.
"(Trainers) told us just before halftime they were going to take (McCoy) in for observation," Brown said. "We didn't see him at halftime, at all. He came back out on the field just as we were getting ready to receive the kickoff and we were told he could play."
McCoy was removed from the game with about five minutes remaining after he became nauseous on the sideline, symptoms related to a concussion. McCoy reported that he became dizzy and began vomiting on the sideline just before backup John Chiles finished Texas' final series. By then, McCoy had suffered his worst outing as a Longhorn with four INTs. It also meant McCoy has been knocked out of three consecutive Big 12 Conference games.
"Overall, I felt like I had control," McCoy said. "I felt I knew what they (defenders) were doing, but every drive seemed to stop with a tipped ball. We haven't had problems with tipped balls all season. Each one of them fell right into their hands. You just have to move on. It's not like you can go game-plan it and say, 'Hey, we're going to stop them from tipping out balls'. It's bad luck and you just have to move on."
Kick-off for the 102nd renewal of the Texas-Oklahoma game is set for 2:30 p.m. (CDT) on ABC-Sports.
