Injury Report: Oct. 11

NORMAN, Okla. — As every other week, Sooners Illustrated has an update on OU's injury situation following head coach Bob Stoops' Tuesday press conference, and much like the rest of the year, the prognosis of guys this time around is positive.

Running back Brennan Clay, who suffered a shoulder injury in the Sooners' 62-6 win over Ball State a couple weeks ago and did not play against Texas, will likely be good to go against Kansas.

"He should, I believe so," Stoops said.

Another guy, Mike linebacker Tom Wort, left the game against Texas with what was later diagnosed as a bruised lower back or tailbone.

He's fine as well, though, and is expected to see the field come Saturday.

"He's good, he practiced," Stoops said. "He'll be all right."

One other injury of obvious note is that of center Ben Habern.

Habern, of course, broke his arm against Missouri, and Stoops said there's nothing new on his status.

"Ben, you know, I'm not sure," Stoops said. "I'll have to get updated here. I'm sure he's still a few weeks away. I'm guessing, right? That's why I'm not sitting here looking for him just yet.

Offensive tackle Jarvis Jones, who returned a few weeks ago from that torn meniscus he suffered in the off-season, is still taking it slow and getting back to full strength.

That's what it is," Stoops said. "He's just trying to get him enough snaps to get him more and more comfortable and get back to game speed like he used to be.

Stay tuned for the latest on OU's injury situation when it becomes available.
