What’s Stills’ status for opener?

CAMPUS CORNER — People have wondered all summer whether receiver Kenny Stills‘ January DUI arrest would cost him part or all of Saturday’s opener against Tulsa.

We’re still wondering, though that will become clear in the following days – and, well, certainly by Saturday.

Stills seemed to indicate this morning the outcome wouldn’t be a positive one for him.

Three tweets this morning …

@KSTiLLS4: Gunna be a tough week for me …

@KSTiLLS4: (to punter) @Tressway36 you know I’m Gunna prepare just like I was getting after it on Saturday (Tress Way said: Come on man you bring too much energy!)

@KSTiLLS4:  You learn from your mistakes but it’s rough when you already knew better

So, those things do not make it sound as if Stills, who was still listed as the starter at No. 2 receiver on OU’s latest depth chart released this morning, will play. He was a valuable part of last year’s team, as a freshman. Stills started all 14 games and caught 61 passes for 786 yards and five TDs last season.

Linebacker Tony Jefferson was arrested when Stills was, for interference with an arrest. Jefferson indicated Friday on Twitter that he would not be suspended for his arrest for a different offense.

We’ll ask Bob Stoops, but there’s no guarantee he will let us know. We’ll see.
