Texas receiver Jordan Whittington will miss three to four weeks after injuring his knee in Saturday night’s season opener against Texas-El Paso.

Texas head coach Tom Herman said at his Monday news conference that Whittington, a Cuero graduate, will undergo surgery for a slight tear in his meniscus.

Whittington, a redshirt freshman, had one carry for 15 yards and two catches for 45 yards in the Longhorns’ 59-3 win over the Miners.

Whittington redshirted last season after having surgery for a groin injury after the first game.

Whittington earned all-state honors as a senior after helping to lead the Gobblers to the 2018 Class 4A, Division II state championship.
