Texas starting LB Jordan Hicks, K Anthony Fera, DT Brandon Moore out for Oklahoma State game
An injury report pertaining to Oklahoma State’s game against Texas was released Friday afternoon.
It just wasn’t Oklahoma State’s report, as the school opted not to put out its usual Friday update, which would have included starting quarterback Wes Lunt.
It was Texas’ report.
UT announced starting linebacker Jordan Hicks (hip), kicker Anthony Fera (groin) and defensive tackle Brandon Moore (virus) did not make the trip to Stillwater and will not play against the Cowboys on Saturday.
Injuries have obviously been a popular topic in college football in recent weeks. USC coach Lane Kiffin temporarily banned a reporter from practice after reporting about an injury, and later ducked out of a post-practice media session when an injury was brought up. Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said earlier this season that he would stop divulging information about injuries, because he believed it would give his team a competitive disadvantage. As a result, Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said last week he is looking into perhaps adopting a conference-wide injury report that resembled the NFL’s weekly updates.
That is essentially what OSU had done on its own for the Arizona and Louisiana-Lafayette games, using status updates like “probable” and “questionable” and also noting if a player had sustained a season-ending injury.
