According to Orangebloods and the AAS, [tag]Brian Orakpo[/tag]’s knee injury will not end his season. The description of the injury on the radio and by those who were watching on PPV was pretty gruesome, so if Orakpo can return to the field this season that’s definitely good news for him and the Texas defense. The Texas coaches were livid that no penalty was called for the illegal chop block that took Orakpo out.

No official word or rumors on how Orakpo will be out, we should know a little more later this week. Eddie Jones, who played well after Orakpo went down against Arkansas State, will start at the quick defensive end spot against TCU.

    Man that block was soooo illegal. I could even tell right when it happened. It’s too bad players can’t get punished for doing something like that.
