OU commit Chris Robison not seriously injured

It's not a fractured shin for OU quarterback commit Chris Robison, who was injured last weekend.

It wasn’t all bad news for Oklahoma on Saturday, but it sure felt like it. Mesquite (Texas) Horn quarterback Chris Robison did not fracture his shin, his mother said following their doctor’s visit Saturday morning.

Robison, a Scout 100 prospect for the Class of 2017, was injured in the second quarter of Mesquite Horn’s 24-17 loss at Highland Park. Robison injured his shin and did not return to the game, spending the second half in a boot and on crutches.

Highland Park was up 14-7 at the time of his injury as Robison connected with Jared Atkinson for a 62-yard touchdown in the first quarter. It was Robison’s 20th touchdown pass of the season against just three interceptions.

Robison is one of two Scout 300 commits from the state of Texas for the 2017 class, joining Southlake Carroll safety Robert Barnes.

Robison has attended every home game for the Sooners this season and has thrown for 1,482 yards, while completing 60 percent of his passes.

Since Robison didn’t suffer a fracture, it’s possible he will be back on the field this week. There’s no way of knowing until he gets back out there and is able to see how comfortable he feels.
