Last week’s game against Iowa State left a couple of Sooners with uncertainty as to their availability moving forward. During his weekly press conference on Tuesday, Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley announced that starting center Andrew Raym is expected to play against Oklahoma State this Saturday, despite a gnarly-looking lower leg injury suffered against Iowa State. Eddie Radosevich had this to say on Twitter during Riley’s press conference:
It was widely expected that Raym would be unavailable this week after he left the Iowa State game in the second half and never returned. Robert Congel, a senior who started his career at Texas A&M, came in to relieve Raym and did a nice job in his absence.
The Sooners will need everyone to be healthy if they hope to beat the Cowboys this weekend, but it sounds like one of their key starters on defense could be a game-time decision.
Riley also announced that DJ Graham, one of Oklahoma’s best cover corners, is questionable for the game against Oklahoma State. He Brandon Drumm tweeted this concerning the injured Sooners:
Graham’s availability will be crucial for Oklahoma defensively, as they have struggled with injuries in the secondary throughout the season.
Sooner Nation is hopeful that both of these guys will be ready to go for Bedlam because Oklahoma needs to pick up a win to get into the Big 12 Championship and keep their College Football Playoff hopes alive.
