AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -That deep and talented group of Texas receivers is taking a beating.
On Saturday, No. 4 Texas announced that senior Billy Pittman is out indefinitely with a left shoulder injury, news that comes just a few days after senior Limas Sweed sprained his left wrist, leaving his status in question for the Sept. 1 season opener against Arkansas State.
Pittman hurt the shoulder in practice Friday and was in a sling Saturday, according to Texas officials, who did not disclose how he was hurt. Trainer Kenny Boyd said the injury was still being evaluated but that Pittman would be out indefinitely.
Pittman has 69 catches for 1,206 yards and nine touchdowns over the past two seasons.
``I felt like I was having a really good camp and in the best shape of my career so I'm pretty disappointed about getting hurt,'' Pittman said. ``I have faith in our doctors, trainers and strength staff that they will get me back as soon as possible, hopefully for the first game.''
Sweed injured his left wrist when he fell after a catch in a scrimmage Wednesday. He told reporters on Friday he has good range of motion in the wrist and that a protective sleeve he's wearing makes it look worse than it feels.
``There's nothing really wrong,'' Sweed said. ``It looks like I broke it in 30 different places.''
Sweed tied a school record with 12 TD catches last season and was one of the top deep-threat receivers in the country with 46 catches for 801 yards.
Texas' passing attack is a big reason why the Longhorns are ranked in the top five in the preseason rankings for the third straight year.
