Sophomore QB Shane Buechele Joins The Hipsters

Sophomore QB Shane Buechele Joins The Hipsters

Austin, TX is known for being weird, zany and full of hipsters. On Thursday of this week, Sophomore Quarterback for the Texas Longhorns, Shane Buechele joined those hipsters, but in a very different way. Buechele had surgery to repair a torn abductor muscle.

The abductor muscles help in moving the leg sideways, away from the midline of the body. These muscles include the piriformis, superior gemellus, inferior gemellus, tensor fasciae latae, sartorius, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus muscles. They attach to the lateral part of the hip.

The Injury

Buechele injured the hip in the Longhorns 33-16 win over the Missouri Tigers during the Academy Sports + Outdoors Texas Bowl in late December. The rising junior didn’t return in the second half of the game and ended up 6-of-14 throwing for 55 yards and a touchdown. Buechele also ran the ball three times for 10 yards against the Tigers. He came up limp in the first half with the groin/hip injury.

Buechele had surgery Thursday. He’s expected to be ready for the start of spring practice on Monday, March 5. This surgery complicates the Longhorns Quarterback situation because true freshman Sam Ehlinger came in the game to replace Buechele and played well. Buechele also had quite the list of  injuries dating back to a shoulder injury he suffered in the team’s season-opening loss to Maryland which cost him two games. He also suffered an ankle injury in the team’s Sept. 28 road win over Iowa State which ended up limiting him for the next three games. Depending on how Buechele’s rehabilitation goes operation, it could make for an interesting battle for the starting quarterback position.

Return to Play

Buechele’s rehabilitation will require some early weight bearing and weight shifting activities, followed by some gentle strengthening, and gait (or walking) training. Once he has mastered all of those, he will move on to heavy weights and resistance training as well as plyometrics (jumping and landing). If everything stays on track, Shane Buechele should be back on the football field in 4-6 weeks.
