The status of Oklahoma State top playmaker Josh Stewart (foot) remains uncertain heading into Saturday's contest at Texas, though coach Mike Gundy said Monday he was hopeful Stewart could return to practice Wednesday.

If Stewart is unable to play, however, fellow receiver Tracy Moore remains confident that the Cowboy offense can make up for that production. Specifically, Moore is confident in backup David Glidden, who posted career highs in catches (six) and yards (73) while filling in for Stewart against Kansas.

“Glidden is a hell of a player,” Moore said. “You know he's gonna come out and he's gonna give you his best game. He's small, but he has a lot of heart and a lot of energy.

“He's gonna play just as well as Josh did.”

Other receivers who could see more action if Stewart is out Saturday include John Goodlett and C.J. Curry.

Glidden, a Mustang product, is also Stewart's backup at punt returner, averaging 2.2 yards on 11 returns so far this season.


Texas has had its share of close calls during its six-game winning streak, needing a late (and controversial) touchdown in a 31-30 victory at Iowa State and a field goal to force overtime in Saturday's win against West Virginia.
