AUSTIN, Texas — With all eyes looking forward to Kansas, Tom Herman gave the media a few updates regarding the injury report for the matchup with the Jayhawks. 

Collin Johnson returned to the injury report after making his return from a hamstring injury that sidelined him for weeks. Herman said he was continuing to be evaluated, was not diagnosed with a concussion and would be lifting weights during workouts on Monday. 

Junior defensive back Chris Brown suffered a fractured forearm and would need surgery, Herman said. Brown will be out for at least six weeks, according to Herman.

Senior linebacker Jeffrey McCulloch dislocated his shoulder and would not be available for the Kansas game, Herman said.

Finally, sophomore linebacker Juwan Mitchell sprained his elbow and Herman said he would not be limited too severely as the week progressed.
