Houston running backs leave Lubbock with injuries

The Houston Cougars left Saturday’s game in Lubbock hurt in more ways than one.

While the 33-30 loss to Texas Tech in double overtime was a tough hit, both Houston running backs Ta’Zhawn Henry and Brandon Campbell are dealing with injuries as well, head coach Dana Holgorsen said after the game.

Holgorsen said Henry re-aggravated his ankle injury that he suffered in week one against UTSA. Henry rushed for only two yards on three carries the entire afternoon against Texas Tech.

Campbell, who rushed for 80 yards on 16 carries, suffered his injury in the first overtime period after he was taken down by a plethora of Texas Tech defenders. The other Houston running backs combined for 11 rushing yards. Quarterback Clayton Tune was recorded as having six rushing attempts for a loss of two yards.

Campbell scored his first collegiate rushing touchdown in UH’s loss to Texas Tech. The head coach did not say what Campbell’s specific injury was after the game.

“I hope (Campbell) is alright. He is getting X-rays right now,” Holgorsen said. “I mean the dude runs hard. He ran hard last week.”
