Hager is being treated and expected to play in the Sugar Bowl. The senior posted a gruesome photo on Instagram that showed massive cuts on his knuckle and thumb to his left hand. “Take notes on my pain,” Hager wrote on the post that was later deleted.
Hager, who proclaimed “OU sucks” and then had just one tackle against the Sooners, deleted his Twitter profile shortly after the game.
