Samaje Perine Out At Least Two Weeks After Injury

Bob Stoops announced Monday that Samaje Perine will miss at least two weeks, possibly three, as he deals with a hamstring injury. Perine suffered the injury early in Oklahoma's 38-17 win against Kansas State.

He had rushed for 23 yards on three carries during Oklahoma's opening drive, and then capped the possession off with a 25-yard touchdown catch to give Oklahoma an early lead. It was on that touchdown, however, that Perine tweaked his hamstring as he never returned to the game.

Bob Stoops did say after the game that Perine could have played if he'd been forced to, but things have obviously changed since then. (CBS Sports)
