Texas is down two more potential starters for Saturday's game against BYU.

In a brief statement Wednesday night, the team announced that starting OTs Desmond Harrison and Kennedy Estelle would be suspended for the game. Both suspensions are because of a violation of team rules.

Harrison, a senior, was suspended for the North Texas game as well for a violation of team rules.

David Ash, Texas' starting QB, will miss the BYU game after the team said he suffered concussion symptoms after the North Texas game. Ash missed 10 games in 2013. Starting C Dominic Espinosa fractured an ankle against North Texas and he's out for the season.

According to Orangebloods, Marcus Hutchins and Kent Perkins are penciled in to start in the place of Harrison and Estelle. Perkins started at guard against North Texas and Hutchins was the team's left tackle against UNT after he switched to offense from defensive tackle. Before his suspension, Estelle was the most experienced player on the offensive line set to start against BYU with nine career starts.

WR Daje Johnson and S Josh Turner were suspended with Harrison to start the season. While Harrison was set to return for the BYU game until his second suspension, Strong said Monday that Johnson and Turner are still suspended.

Before the season, Texas dismissed RB Joe Bergeron, DB Chevoski Collins and RB Jalen Overstreet.
