Little was known early Monday of the status of injured walk-on freshman quarterback Baker Mayfield, but there was some good news.
"I just know that he will not be out for the entire season, that was it, there wasn't structural damage that we found," Kingsbury said during the Big 12 teleconference. "But other than that, that's all I got, just that initial report."
Mayfield, who has started and won all five games this season, went down with an apparant knee injury in the final minute of the third quarter Saturday during the Red Raiders' 54-16 win over Kansas in Lawrence.
Kingsbury didn't rule out Mayfield starting this week or even practicing Monday, but said they had to "get him over to the field and see how he feels."
Tight end Jace Amaro was asked during Monday's weekly media luncheon press conference if he had talked with Mayfield and how the freshman was feeling.
"Yeah he said he plans on going this week, he says he's gong to find out today what's wrong medically and so we'll see what happens later on," Amaro said.
Mayfield has passed for 1,488 yards, eight touchdowns and rushed for another 119 yards, two scores this season.
If Mayfield can't go either fellow freshman Davis Webb, who has thrown for 550 yards and six touchdowns, or recently activated sophomore Michael Brewer, who saw his first action of the season Saturday against Kansas, will take his place.
