Longhorns Lose Defender for the Season

HornsDigest has just learned that the Texas Longhorns will be without a senior defensive player for the rest of the season.

Longhorns senior LB Dalton Santos is out for the season, his father Albert tells HD. He had surgery to repair an ankle injury he suffered during spring camp.

"A lot more complicated than they originally thought," he said. "Thought was [surgeons] were going to go in and clean out and do a tight rope on a tendon but had to end up doing a microfracture surgery instead."

His father said he expects his son to make a full recovery and be ready to play next season.
