Andrew Dieb-USA TODAY Sports

Texas Longhorns quarterback Shane Buechele is set to undergo hip surgery on Thursday, the program announced Wednesday.

Buechele was in and out of the Longhorns’ lineup throughout the season last year as he battled multiple injuries. The sophomore played in nine games, but he got hurt in the team’s bowl game win over Missouri on Dec. 27.

His surgery will be to repair a torn adductor muscle.

Texas says they expect Buechele to be ready for spring practice, which begins on March 5.

Buechele will be competing with Sam Ehlinger for the starting job.
