AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -Texas tight end Blaine Irby will miss the rest of the season after dislocating his right knee Saturday against Rice, trainer Kenny Boyd said Sunday.
Irby started all three games this season and had 10 catches for 95 yards and two touchdowns. He had seven receptions for 62 yards and a TD in the Longhorns' season-opening victory over Florida Atlantic.
Texas coach Mack Brown said Irby will get a medical redshirt year and have three seasons of eligibility when he returns in 2009.
``We have a great history of tight ends and Blaine was quickly developing into the type of player to follow in those footsteps,'' Brown said. ``He was getting better every week and making a big impact in our offense.''
Peter Ullman and Greg Smith both have played this season and are expected to compete for the starting tight end job.
Irby is expected to undergo surgery.
t have to take it one step at a time,'' Irby said. ``I know the tight end spot and the offense won't lose a beat because Peter and Greg are there to lead the way.''
