Longhorns Football News: RT Darius James Out For The Season

The Texas Longhorns' offensive line has been beseiged by injuries during the 2014 college football season, with right tackle Darius James the latest to be sidelined.

Per Kevin McGuire of NBC's College Football Talk, "the lineman injured his knee, and the injury will sideline him for the remainder of the season. This information was first reported by Orange Bloods (behind a pay wall), the Rivals outlet covering the Longhorns."

With James' injury, the Texas Longhorns have just six offensive linemen left available to them with three games left to play in the regular season.

According to McGuire, "James was listed with the second team players at both tackle positions with two career starts to his name. Starting center Taylor Doyle is the team’s second string right guard on the depth chart, with Jake Raulerson backing him up at center, but that is the extent of the flexibility listed on the depth chart at this point in the season."

With all this in mind, it's clear to see that the Longhorns' depth has been taxed almost to its fullest extent. Needing two wins in their final three games to become bowl eligible, Texas will need major luck in the health department to play a big role in the team's potential success going forward.
