North Texas ID: is this Carolina Horsenettle w/out spines?

Plano, TX

These ratty-looking forbs with the cute little "tomatoes" are everywhere in a local prairie. My web searching suggests that they are Carolina Horsenettle, but there just don't seem to be the "nettles/spines" on the stems. Is this something else?
Thanks so much! (as always)
