On top of falling short to Alabama at home Saturday on the heels of multiple officiating controversies, Texas had injury added to insult Sunday when insiders reported Quinn Ewers will have to miss time due to injury after leaving the game during the first quarter of the Longhorns' 20-19 loss.

Ewers exited the contest after getting plucked out of the air on an attempted sack with just 30 seconds remaining in the first period. Alabama linebacker Dallas Turner slammed Ewers into the ground on the quarterback's left shoulder, resulting in an injury that knocked him out of the game and prevented him from stepping back onto the field.

Eventually, Ewers returned to the sideline in street clothes sporting a sling.

Before the injury, Ewers completed nine of 12 passes for 134 yards.

Ewers’ injury adds to the sorrows of Texas, a program that nearly enjoyed its most significant victory in years on Saturday but was not awarded a safety that would have provided a winning difference in points due to one of the most controversial roughing the passer calls in recent memory.

For now, the "Texas is back" meme continues.
