One of the big questions this football season has been centered around the whereabouts of redshirt sophomore receiver Derrick Woods. After playing in Oklahoma's first three games of the season, Woods left the Tennessee game with an ankle injury and didn't return to the field until the Texas Tech game on November 15.
Bob Stoops commented about Woods following Oklahoma's 42-30 win over the Red Raiders and everything seemed to be back in order. "Derrick had a bad ankle sprain for quite a while and he's back off of that now," Stoops said. "Hopefully he can start doing some of the things he did special teams-wise especially. He was great in that regard a year ago and we need him back doing some things that way."
On Tuesday the football program released the news that Woods has been indefinitely removed from the team.

Coming to Oklahoma as the #16 player in the state of California, Woods was a 4-star recruit by Rivals who played both receiver and defensive back in high school. He caught two passes at Oklahoma for a total of 29 yards and played in 15 games as a receiver and a member of special teams.
