Oklahoma was just starting to get used to playing without one of its key defensive leaders when the Sooners suddenly lost one of its most indispensable offensive players.
Trey Millard sustained a season-ending knee injury on a fourth-quarter kickoff during the Sooners' 38-30 win over Texas Tech on Saturday. No. 13 Oklahoma (7-1, 4-1 Big 12) will play at No. 5 Baylor (8-0, 5-0) on Nov. 7 without the versatile senior, a starting fullback who also has been used as a tight end and a wide receiver.
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said Monday it will be difficult to replace Millard. Millard's absence likely will mean increased roles for junior fullback Aaron Ripkowski and senior tight end Brannon Green.
