Austin Box Out Three Weeks After Knee Surgery

The good news is that the injury to Austin Box wasn’t any worse than it was but Oklahoma has lost one of their linebackers for at least three weeks. Box was going up against J.R. Bryant for the weak-side linebacker spot before having to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on his left knee to repair some torn cartilage on Tuesday.

 

The injury means that Bryant will most likely start the season when the Sooners host Chattanooga and that Box won’t be back in the mix at least until the Cincinnati game.

 

Another thing that Oklahoma has going for them is depth at the position. In addition to Box and Bryant redshirt freshman Travis Lewis has turned some heads and JUCO transfer Mike Balogun is athletic enough to move out of the middle and play the outside as well.
