Six Texas football players to miss spring drills

All are recovering from recent surgeries.

The six are sophomore DE Eddie Jones (left shoulder); junior LB Sergio Kindle (to repair cartilage in right knee); senior DE Aaron Lewis (broken left clavicle); junior Ishie Oduegwu (left shoulder); junior OT Adam Ulatoski (left knee) and sophomore WR Montre Webber (to repair a right foot fracture).

Jones' shoulder problems can now be safely described as an ongoing issue, and they may be the reason Texas is still trying to sign another defensive end for their recruiting class.

The combination of Oduegwu missing the spring and the graduation of Marcus Griffith and Erick Jackson, Texas will spend the spring trying to find some safeties. Good. The young guys have more upside.

And Webber's surgery couldn't have come at a worse time. He needed to emerge as a potential starter coming out of the spring.
