On Monday, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said that Trevor Knight’s MRIs X-rays were fine, but it still isn’t known if the QB will be able to take on Texas Tech as the Sooners move into their week off, and sportsbook software services can’t wait to see what will happen with the player.
Knight will not be able to hold practice on Monday, and the coach said that until Tuesday or Wednesday he’s not expecting to have more information on his status.
“Once I do know, I will say one way or the other,” said Stoops.
The QB suffered the injury on Saturday in the fourth quarter when Oklahoma suffered a 48-14 loss to Baylor after he was sacked by a couple of defenders. The player was immobilized and then carted off, but on Saturday evening he was able to leave the stadium without any help.
A concussion was ruled out for Knight, but details of the injury were not revealed by the coach.
“He’s pretty sore right now, it’s just being able to manage it,” said Stoops. “We’ll just see how he continues to respond but [the injury] isn’t to the head.”
In the case that Knight isn’t able to play on Saturday, the Sooners are ready to use the services of Cody Thomas, who this season featured in four meetings. The most important performance made by Thomas was in a 31-30 loss to Kansas State, as he took the place of an injured Knight and was able to lead the Sooners with a scoring drive in the first half of the meeting before Knight entered the game.
Sportsbook software services could see that the player’s display gave more confidence to the Sooners when it came to Thomas. This season, the player is 7-of-16 for 50 yards and only had one interception, and for 25 yards, he was able to add four carries.
“I’m very comfortable with Cody,” said Stoops. “He’s shown great poise when he’s been out there, he’s shown a comfort level in what we’re doing and the ability to throw it. I’ll feel good about him out there.”
Early during the week, Blake Bell – former QB and starting TE – will be able to get a few snaps at QB during practice as Knight’s status isn’t known yet, and on Saturday he would be backing up Thomas if Knight can’t hit the field by then.
