Longhorns defensive end Orakpo, cornerback Brown, punter Gerland out
Texas defensive end Brian Orakpo will miss Saturday's game against Baylor as he recovers from a sprained left knee.
Orakpo sustained the injury in the third quarter of the Longhorns' loss at Texas Tech last week. The semifinalist for the Lombardi Award leads the Longhorns with nine sacks, 15 tackles for losses and 23 quarterback hurries. Sophomore Sam Acho will start in his place.
Texas trainer Kenny Boyd also said that part-time starting cornerback Chykie Brown (left ankle) and punter Trevor Gerland (left knee) also will miss Saturday's game. Wide receiver Quan Cosby is listed as probable as he recovers from a back injury sustained against Texas Tech.
