QB Ash questionable for Texas vs No. 25 Ole Miss

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Texas coach Mack Brown says quarterback David Ash remains questionable for Saturday's game against No. 25 Mississippi after head and shoulder injuries last week against BYU.

Ash left in the second half of the 40-21 loss. Ash has been held out of practice and Brown said Wednesday he's still waiting to hear from team doctors on Ash's status for the next game. Brown says a final decision could be delayed until Saturday.

Ash accounted for five touchdowns for the Longhorns (1-1) in a season-opening win over New Mexico State. He had two touchdown passes against BYU.

If Ash can't play, the Longhorns will start senior Case McCoy with freshman Tyrone Swoopes as the top backup. McCoy has six career starts.
