RB Rodney Anderson To Miss 2016 Season After Suffering Neck Injury

University of Oklahoma head football coach Bob Stoops announced Friday afternoon that redshirt freshman running back Rodney Anderson will miss the 2016 season due to a neck injury he sustained in Thursday's intrasquad scrimmage.

"I hate it for Rodney," said Stoops. "It didn't appear to be much of an injury at the time and there's no paralysis or anything like that. But we found out this afternoon that he will be out for the year. Rodney is a strong guy and will rebound from this just like he came back after missing most of last season. He was practicing exceptionally well and had positioned himself to have a role in this year's offense."

Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops took time to answer a few questions from The Oklahoman while attending game 1 of the WCWS Finals.

From The Oklahoman:
Q. What's your impression of this OU softball team?
A. "I love watching them. It's fun. This is an exciting game to watch. I might want to watch it more than baseball. It goes a little quicker for my pace. I want things happening, and they do a good job."
Q. What do you make of this 31-game win streak?
A. "Again, give Patty and her staff for being able to touch the right buttons. And her team, to receive the right message and want to play the way they do and with a young team. You've got to give them all the credit in the world. They're on a great run, and I just wish them the best of luck finishing. They can do it."
