Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight was taken out of Oklahoma’s game against Kansas State, just about midway through the first quarter. Knight went sliding at the end of the play when he landed on his left shoulder. Trainers helped him off the field and Knight soon was seen running to the locker room. His status for the rest of this afternoon’s game is unknown at this time. We will update the news regarding Knight once more information becomes available.
Cody Thomas has taken over under center for now, but Oklahoma has already mixed in a little Belldozer action. On the play before Knight was injured, Blake Bell helped pick up some yards by taking the snap and pushing forward.
Adding insult to injury, Oklahoma was also called for a targeting penalty on the play. Aaron Ripkowski was called for targeting with a helmet-to-helmet hit on a Kansas State defender. After the mandatory video review, the ejection was upheld. So in one play Oklahoma lost a quarterback (at least for the moment) and a fullback.
UPDATE (12:37 p.m. ET): After missing one offensive series, Knight has returned to the game to lead the Oklahoma offense. He returned to the game with a brace on his left arm.
