OT Josh Cochran out for spring after sustaining leg injury Wednesday


Junior offensive tackle Josh Cochran will be out for the spring after sustaining a lower leg fracture during Wednesday practice, Texas head athletic trainer Kenny Boyd said Wednesday evening.

Cochran started in all 13 games last season as a sophomore, playing both right and left tackle. His aid to the Texas offense earned him first-team Freshman All-America honors by Yahoo! Sports. As a freshman, he played in 12 games with seven starts, the first at Oklahoma State.

When Cochran will return is unclear, but he should be recovered in time for August practices, Boyd said.
