STILLWATER — Oklahoma State starting linebacker Orie Lemon has a torn ACL and will miss the season, according to a report on GoPokes.com. The senior from Houston injured his knee during Monday’s practice.

Lemon, as a senior who has not redshirted, could use this season as a redshirt year and return for the 2010 season.

Senior Donald Booker is expected to replace Lemon in the starting lineup when OSU hosts Georgia on Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium.

Coupled with tight end Jamal Mosley, who left the team for personal reasons on Tuesday, that makes two starters the Cowboys have lost during their final week of preparation for Georgia.
