Frank Shannon Will Start Against Texas Tech

The knee injury Oklahoma Sooners linebacker Jordan Evans suffered against Kansas State will likely sideline him for Saturday’s meeting against Texas Tech.

Defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said Frank Shannon has taken all the first-team snaps at the spot in Monday’s and Tuesday’s practice.

“Frank will start,” he said. “I feel pretty comfortable in saying that. If Jordan’s available, if we need him, it’ll be late in the week. He’s still not 100 percent.”

“I think, now that he’s taking first-team reps his focus has been much better and you see that he’s really zeroed in,” Stoops said of Shannon. “If he has to go for Jordan, we feel very confident in his ability to come in and play at a high level.” (STimes.com)
