RS-freshman Eddie Jones, who filled in for Brian Orakpo against Arkansas State, is expected to make his first start of the season. The consensus prep All-American from Kilgore responded with four tackles, a crtical end zone INT, one TFL and was given an assist on a sack. Orakpo's injury is not expected to be season-ending.
WR Jordan Shipley (hamstring) has been upgraded from 'doubtful' to 'questionable'. Shipley will continue to handle the holding duties on PAT/field goals as he did in the opener.
RS-freshman Sherrod Harris (knee) is also 'out' for Saturday's ballgame.
Orakpo Out; Shipley 'Questionable'
