The sides returned to meet in small groups after taking a day off following labor talks Friday and Saturday. The weekend passed without the “enormous consequences” Commissioner David Stern warned of without significant progress toward a new deal. But they would likely come this week without an agreement.

Longhorns lose senior safety to broken hand

AUSTIN, TEXAS — Texas senior safety Christian Scott is out indefinitely with a right wrist injury. Scott was hurt in Saturday’s win over Iowa State. Scott was suspended for the first three games after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge.

The injury further hurts Texas’ depth in the secondary as the No. 11 Longhorns (4-0) prepare to play No. 3 Oklahoma (4-0) on Saturday. Another safety, Nolan Brewster, recently gave up football because of concussions and migraine headaches.
