David Ash suffered what looked like a nasty wrist injury, but he showed up with a wrap around it on Monday and says he's playing against Baylor on Saturday.
The baseball-sized knot that sprung up in his wrist during Saturday's loss to Oklahoma was no longer visible. Ash looked much more optimistic about his immediate playing future than the uncertainty he wore on his face at the Cotton Bowl.
"Yeah, I will play," said Ash, whose 25th-ranked Longhorns will host Baylor.
Ash was injured when he took a direct helmet-to-wrist hit while attempting a pass with 9:43 left in Texas' 63-21 drubbing to the Sooners. He was replaced by Case McCoy, who went 5 of 8 for 102 yards and two touchdowns against largely second- and third-team Oklahoma defenders.
