Oklahoma sophomore wide receiver Jaz Reynolds (16)
The injury bug has hit the Oklahoma Sooners once again. The team's third-best receiver, Jaz Reynolds, has been ruled out for OU's bowl date with Iowa. Oklahoma already is without its top receiver, Ryan Broyles.
Oklahoma already has lost for the season its best running back, an All-American receiver and one of the best defensive ends in college football, now it appears that the Sooners will be without their third best receiver when they play Iowa in the Insight Bowl in Tempe, Ariz., on Dec. 30.
Junior wide receiver Jaz Reynolds was third on the team this season, behind "Mr. Dependable" Ryan Broyles and sophomore Kenny Stills, with 41 receptions for 715 yards and five touchdowns. Reynolds made a one-handed touchdown grab against Kansas State that was a circus catch for the highlight reels.
Reynolds reportedly is suffering from a kidney injury.
Oklahoma also will be without the services of running back Brandon Williams and fullback Aaron Ripkowski for the Iowa bowl game. Both are suffering from injuries incurred in the Sooners final regular-season game with conference-champion Oklahoma State.
"We've had some significant injuries over the last half of the season, but this is an opportunity for other players to step up," OU head coach Bob Stoops said.
