Redshirt sophomore wide receiver Derrick Woods saw his first action since mid-September in Saturday’s game at Texas Tech.

Woods had been battling an ankle injury since the Tennessee game.

“Hopefully he can start doing some of the things he did special teams-wise especially,” Bob Stoops said. “He was great in that regard a year ago and we need him back doing some things that way.”

Sooners wide receivers coach Jay Norvell said there was also still a place for Woods on offense as well.

If healthy, Woods, who had a 20-yard catch in the Sugar Bowl, would figure to be a key player on the outside, especially with Sterling Shepard out.

“He’s a very aggressive kid,” Norvell said. (The Oklahoman)
