David Ash out with concussion symptomsPosted: September 1, 2014
It’s time for Ash to retire from football
AUSTIN — Texas quarterback David Ash is out indefinitely after suffering the third documented concussion of his college career during a win against North Texas on Saturday, Texas coach Charlie Strong said Monday.
Ash will miss at least this weekend’s game against Brigham Young and be evaluated weekly, Strong said.
He said Ash’s injury occurred early in the first quarter of the 38-7 win, but that Ash did not begin to show concussion symptoms — headaches and dizziness — until later in the evening.
But he showed no symptoms during the game, Strong said. Ash would throw for one touchdown and run for another after taking the hit.
“I don’t know if he’s hiding it, but he’s a competitor,” Strong said. “We have to be smart as coaches.”
