Trey Millard was lost for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Three weeks after losing its best defender, Corey Nelson, to a season-ending injury, Millard's career with the Sooners is also done.
“The whole team's just crushed by it,” Sooners coach Bob Stoops said. “You hate it. He's so much a strong, strong part of our football team, so it'll be tough to overcome that loss.”
What Millard has done so well for so long is give Oklahoma the ability to switch formations without adjusting personnel.
Millard could line up as a fullback or a running back, put his hand down and protect from the tight end spot or stand up and catch passes from the slot.
The Sooners have other players that can fill those roles individually. They don't, though, have another who can take on all of those roles.
“All you can say about Trey is he's the best in the country at doing what he does and he's been that way for a long time,” Sooners co-offensive coordinator Josh Heupel said. “We're going to miss him, absolutely.” (The Oklahoman)
