Will Baker Mayfield play against Texas? Bob Stoops gives update

Posted October 3rd, 2016


Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield looked to suffer a significant ankle/foot injury in the Sooners’ thrilling 52-46 win over TCU Saturday.

He suffered the injury on a sack near the end of the second quarter. He was treated in the locker room at halftime and played the entire second half. Sometimes adrenaline gets you through such injuries.

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said that Mayfield “was sore” Sunday.


“He’s a little bit sore, but he’ll be ready to go,” Stoops said Monday during the Big 12 coaches weekly teleconference.

So expect Mayfield, the former Lake Travis High School standout, to play against the Texas Longhorns this Saturday in Dallas.
