Injury Report: Cowboys Banged Up In Win

Oklahoma State won the war with the 45-24 score on the Faurot Field scoreboard, but a price was paid for victory over this old time Big Eight and now departing Big 12 foe.

In the first quarter, Hubert Anyiam did a contortionist act to twist and catch a pass for 31-yards before he was taken out of bounds by a Missouri defender near midfield. The senior wide receiver immediately began screaming and grabbing his leg while on the ground. He had to be helped the few feet over to the training table on the sidelines and later under the end zone to the X-ray facility. After the game head coach Mike Gundy told the team that it looked like Anyiam was done for the season. The medical staff will evaluate further on Sunday and Monday, but the injury to his left foot seems to be very similar to the one he suffered with and had to have surgically repaired on his right foot.

"Hubert is one of my good friends on the team and I know how hard he has worked," said quarterback Brandon Weeden. "This hurts and I'm hurting for Hubert. We have a lot of weapons and today Isaiah (Anderson) did a good job of stepping up and so did (Michael) Harrison for Blackmon in the second half."

Yes, Justin Blackmon, and the report on the Cowboys All-American wide receiver and defending Biletnikoff Award winner is that he had a head injury, just serious enough to hold him out for precautionary reasons and to prevent a more severe situation. Gundy said Blackmon should be back at practice this week. He was standing on the sideline and following the action and being involved talking to coaches and teammates. Blackmon finished with a team high eight catches for 54 yards and a touchdown, all in the first half.

Three other injuries to mention as cornerback Brodrick Brown and defensive end Richetti Jones each ended up with interceptions, that wasn't the only thing they had in common as Brown suffered a first half hip bruise and Jones had one in the second half. Both players got treatment after the game and should be fine, although those injuries typically become more sore and annoying 24-48 hours following the game.

Defensive end Cooper Bassett made the trip and suited up, but did not play at all. Bassett had a stinger against Texas on a punt play. He aggravated it this week and was held out to allow full time to heal. He should be ready; along with Blackmon, Brown, and Jones; for Baylor.
