COLVIN SITS AGAIN
Senior cornerback Aaron Colvin missed another practice Tuesday. The 2012 All-Big 12 selection cracked a molar in last week's win over West Virginia, and may have also suffered a concussion.
Asked if Colvin had a concussion Monday, defensive coordinator Mike Stoops declined to answer, saying, “I can't comment … we don't talk about injuries but we're confident he'll be ready.”
Should Colvin miss Saturday's game against Tulsa, he'll likely be replaced by sophomore Cortez Johnson, who came in after his injury last week.
NO UPDATE ON THOMPSON
Heupel didn't provide an update on the condition of left tackle Tyrus Thompson, who left last week's game late in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury.
If Thompson isn't available against Tulsa, it's likely that coaches would move senior guard Bronson Irwin, who started all 13 games last year, to right tackle, and shift Daryl Williams from the right to the left side of the line.
“I don't know what we'll end up doing,” Heupel said. “Does that answer anything?”
Redshirt freshman cornerback Zack Sanchez, on redshirting last year: “When you go through it, you think it's a waste of time, but it really did help me with a lot of things and improve my game to where I am now.”
