Linebacker Curtis Bolton Out For Season Opener Against Houston

On Wednesday, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops announced that sophomore linebacker Curtis Bolton will miss the first game due to injury.

Stoops said Bolton has a strained patella tendon and won’t play against Houston on Sept. 3.

Bolton played in four games for the Sooners in 2015 after taking a redshirt his first year. He recorded no tackles.

Inside linebacker coach Tim Kish praised Bolton earlier in fall camp.

"He’s been here for two years, going on his third year, we need his athleticism on the field as well. He’s gonna help us in a lot of different areas," Kish said. "We won’t restrict just to necessarily being a linebacker. We can utilize him in some third down packages that we’re going to use and add again to our athleticism across the board.” (OU Daily)
