Wes Lunt's Injury Not As Bad As It Looked

The Oklahoma State locker room and training room will be in lockdown for the next two weeks. The emergence of J.W. Walsh as an excellent quarterback option after the injury to Wes Lunt means that Texas head coach Mack Brown and Longhorns defensive coordinator Manny Diaz will be working on everything possible in preparation for the Cowboys game with Texas on Sept. 29.

All that said, many of you have seen the picture of Lunt on the field just after the injury and it sure looks like a dislocated knee. I believe that other than that injury that the knee is sound from all reports I've heard and that Lunt could play again soon.

Texas soon? I don't know, but in a way it is in Mike Gundy and the Cowboys favor to keep Texas and everyone else guessing.

The news was not so good on cornerback Devin Hedgepeth. I was told on the sidelines after the injury from head football trainer Kevin Blaske that Hedgepeth is out. He will be out for an extended period as it was easy to see that he re-injured the Achilles tendon.

Other injuries included cornerback Justin Gilbert, safety Shamiel Gary and linebacker Nico Ornelas, but all appeared to be minor in nature and all returned to the game.
