Oklahoma’s offensive line injuries are improving
When asked about his offensive line injuries, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said the outlook looked “better.”
Both right guard Bronson Irwin and left guard Adam Shead suffered sore ankles in the past few games. Left tackle Lane Johnson still isn’t seeing the start after his ankle was sprained during the Notre Dame game.
Then Saturday against Baylor, starting center Gabe Ikard stood on the sideline in street clothes after he was diagnosed with “head issues” and wasn’t cleared to play.
“I’m expecting to have Gabe Ikard back (for West Virginia),” Stoops said. “He was very close Thursday but didn’t feel that they were ready to clear him.
“Lane Johnson was better, finished the game. Actually, Lane had a nice game when he was in there. Limited snaps, but did well. He’ll be improved.
“Bronson was improved. Adam, we believe will be fine with a day or two of rest. So I think we’ll have all those guys ready to go.”
The offensive line already lost both Tyler Evans and Nila Kasitati to ACL tears and Ben Habern to a lingering neck issue.
