AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -A recurring neck injury will force Texas sophomore tight end Ian Harris to miss the 2009 season.
Longhorns trainer Kenny Boyd made the announcement Wednesday. Harris played in three games in 2008 but has struggled to overcome a nerve injury.
Harris is the fourth tight end to be lost for the season to an injury.
Redshirt freshman D.J. Grant injured his knee last week and will need surgery. Former starter Blaine Irby has not yet recovered from a 2008 knee injury. Josh Marshall missed last season with a broken collarbone and announced at the start of training camp that he would give up football.
The Longhorns still have tight ends Greg Smith and freshman Barrett Matthews.
