Update: The Tulsa World, in addition to the oklahoma football team, have confirmed that starting TE Jermaine Gresham has suffered cartilidge damage in his right knee, and he will be held out of Saturday night’s opener against No. 20 BYU. In his place, expect to see 6′ 4″, 243-pound James Hanna and/or 6′ 4″, 232-pound Trent Ratterree, both of whom have taken snaps and practiced at the TE position beside Gresham. It is unknown how long Gresham will be sidelined with the injury.
According to our friends at Burnt Orange Nation (BoN), it sounds as though oklahoma’s star tight end, Jermaine Gresham, may have “tweaked” his knee in practice on Tuesday. He did not practice on Wednesday, although he attended in street clothes, and was apparently not walking on crutches.
Any injury to Gresham would be a huge blow to oklahoma’s offensive productivity this year. With key wide receivers gone, and Gresham’s ability to stretch the field and play with hands of glue, any time off the field would force 2008 Heisman winner and quarterback Sam Bradford to find some new targets down field.
That’s the latest out of Norman.
