Oklahoma State football notebook: Tight end Justin Horton out for season

Quarterback J.W. Walsh's knee injury wasn't the only season-ender revealed during Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy's Sunday evening teleconference, as senior Justin Horton is also done for the year after an apparent leg injury sustained Saturday against Iowa State.

“As a group, we really ran to the football,” Gundy said. “But they're starting to kind of understand. Each week in this league, it's kind of scary when you go out there with all the firepower that these teams have on offense.”


When asked to assess the first half of the Cowboys' season, Gundy pointed to several up-and-down moments of their 4-2 (2-1 Big 12) campaign so far.

“Really poor” on defense against Arizona. “Bad on offense” against Kansas. Better in both phases against ISU. Average on special teams at times.


“Our guys are playing pretty good,” Gundy said. “We've got some young guys in key spots, and it shows up. It's just not as clean as it was the last year or two, because we've got some young guys in spots that are much more visible.”
