STILLWATER — Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said Monday he will have to wait for results of MRIs and X-rays before he knows whether quarterback Zac Robinson or linebacker Patrick Lavine would be able to play in a December bowl game.

Both were hurt in OSU's 49-17 loss to Oklahoma last Saturday.

Robinson injured his right shoulder during the third quarter. It was believed to be a severe bruise, but Robinson experienced pain in his throwing shoulder. He was removed early in the fourth quarter. Lavine, who leads the Cowboys in tackles, suffered a severe ankle injury.

"I'm a little concerned about Zac,” Gundy said. "And I'm a little concerned about Lavine and (Shane) Jarka. We'll just have to wait to see the results.”

Jarka, a redshirt defensive tackle, suffered a foot injury and was wearing a boot after the game. Tonga Tea, another defensive tackle, left with a knee injury but returned later in the game.

Senior wide receiver Adarius Bowman is expected to play in the bowl game. Bowman has made steady improvement from a sprained knee that sidelined him the final two regular season games.
