J.W. Walsh, Justin Horton Out For Season

Oklahoma State quarterback J.W. Walsh is out for the season following an examination on Sunday afternoon that revealed an injury to his right knee. Walsh injured the knee in the first quarter on a quarterback sack on what Gundy estimated was the 10th play of the game.

It was the middle of Gundy's teleconference Sunday evening when during an answer he blurted out that Walsh was out for the season. Some of the media on the call thought Gundy was kidding at first.

"No, I wouldn't kid about something like that," said Gundy. "It is true."

The head coach said that Walsh had to be really tough to do what he did as he played the rest of the Cowboys' 31-10 victory over Iowa State on Saturday.

On the sidelines, he notified the medical staff that his knee was sweeling up and they examined him. But he was able to continue. Walsh wore a sleeve on the right knee in the second half and continued playing.

The redshirt freshman completed 32 of 47 passes for 415 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions against the Cyclones.

The Cowboys have also lost for the season tight end Justin Horton, who was injured in the third quarter. Horton tore his left Achilles tendon on a 24-yard catch.
