In Saturday’s season-opening tilt with the Southeastern Louisiana Lions, two notable starters were missing from the fold.It was reported in the pre-game that both defensive end Jordan Brailford and wide receiver Chris Lacy would not (and did not) play Saturday due to injuries. According to the report from Oklahoma State insider Robert Allen, Brailford was held out due to a leg injury and did not suit up, while Chris Lacy was held out as a precaution due to a knee injury.In Mike Gundy’s press conference following the game, he did state that he expects both guys to be back in practice this week. Both injuries seem to have held them out on a precautionary basis, but it will be something to keep an eye on this week as they hopefully eye a return to the field.Chris Lacy back on the #okstate depth chart this week, backing up Washington. DE Jordan Brailford listed as an “or” with Cole Walterscheid.— Nathan Ruiz (@NathanSRuiz) September 5, 2016Other depth chart notes this week:• Larry Williams starting at RG (which actually happened on Saturday) and Jesse Robinson as the new backup LG• Darius Curry starting at nickel• Michael Wilson was taken off the two deep at center and moved to RT• DeQuinton Osborne slides into the No. 2 DT slot behind Vincent Taylor and Sugar Loaf Daniels moves to No. 3• Kevin Henry was added as the No. 3 WLB with the announcement that Josh Mabin is retiring• Jeff Carr was added as the No. 3 KR• Max Allan was added as the No. 3 PKFive possible starters listed at running back for #okstate again pic.twitter.com/A4lcePj1qp— Dekota Gregory (@dekotagregory) September 5, 2016last_img read more

Instant Recap: Oklahoma State Falls in Bedlam 38-20

first_imgNot the day the Cowboys had in mind when they woke up.Oklahoma State got off to a fast start to keep pace with the Sooners in the first half. The score was tied, 17-17 with under a minute. And with time winding down and the Cowboys in possession around the 50-yard line, Oklahoma State elected to run the clock out with a timeout in the pocket. It was a foreshadowing of what was to come from Mike Gundy.The Sooners shut it down offensively in the second half, scoring two touchdowns and limiting Oklahoma State on the ground. They weren’t able to get Justice Hill and Chris Carson going down the stretch, which was one of the biggest factors. Even with Dede Westbrook out of the game after an injury, the defense couldn’t hold Baker Mayfield, who ripped up the defense with his legs and with his arm.The game-shifter in this one, though, was a call that Gundy went conservative with. On 3rd and 10 down 11, Oklahoma State called a run play and picked up 8 yards. And instead of going for it to pick up the first down, they went for a field goal that hooked right.The very next play: Joe Mixon took it to the house for a touchdown to essentially end the game.The Cowboys fell 38-20. And it was never really much of a game after the second half. While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.
