Go Ahead And Mark Tom Wort Down As The Starting Middle Linebacker: Austin Box Out 3-6 Weeks

New, 7 comments

It doesn't look like Austin Box will be playing in the season opener and possibly not until the Air Force or Cincinnati games.

According to a Twitter announcement by Oklahoma's athletic department this afternoon, Box is suffering from a disc injury. Word first surfaced on the injury yesterday when it was released that he was day-to-day with a back injury. Today's announcement all but ends the competition between Box (a junior) and redshirt freshman Tom Wort for the opening day starter at middle linebacker.
