Stoops expects Jordan Phillips to play vs. Texas

Baring a setback, Oklahoma should see a defensive starter return for the Red River Shootout this Saturday.

Starting defensive tackle  Jordan Phillips missed the TCU game this last Saturday with an injury that the school declined to detail.  While he’s sat out the last three practices, his head coach expects the lineman to see the field for the annual rivalry game against Texas Saturday.

“He’s gotten better,” Bob Stoops said Wednesday. “So, we’re expecting him to play and hopefully practice some more here tomorrow. He’s making some improvement.”

Phillips started the first four games this season after playing in 11 games as a redshirt freshman in 2012.  Despite missing a game, Phillips is second on the Sooners in sacks (1.5) and tied for fourth in tackles for loss (two).

If Phillips is unable to go, Jordan Wade would likely again get the start.

    Why not let Jordan Phillips “compete” by drilling Case into the ground and then dare the Big 12 to suspend Phillips? What will be the over and under
    that one good hit on a skill player for Texas results in a suspension for the offending party without regards to what team (other than Texas) does it the rest of the season?
