OU’s Granger out with ligament damage
Oklahoma defensive tackle Demarcus Granger has ligament damage in his left foot that will require surgery and he will be out for an undetermined periord of time, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
OU is expected to release details later this afternoon.
Granger was injured on a play just before halftime last week against Washington in a pileup during which some contended replays showed one or more Husky players twisting his lower leg. OU coach Bob Stoops said he saw nothing that made him question Washington players’ actions.
Granger was slowed during August with back spasms and has not started any of OU’s three games, but has been a part of the rotation. He has a total of six tackles and 1.5 sacks. The Sooners still will have an experienced 3-man tackle rotation of Gerald McCoy, Cory Bennett and Adrian Taylor and immediately will begin looking to add some depth.–Mike Jones.
