The Oklahoma Sooners have playmakers on both sides of the ball. Entering the season at full strength, hopes ran high as Bob Stoops coached his way to 4-0. Then, the unthinkable happened. Heavy favored to win the Red River Rivalry, the crimson and cream ran into an angry Texas Longhorns squad. Unable to answer the challenge presented, Baker Mayfield experience a loss for the first time as the starting quarterback since landing in Norman. Regardless, the playmakers are needed and it appears as if OU may be without Devante Bond for the second consecutive week.
Devante Bond - Questionable - Against the West Virginia Mountaineers, Bond suffered an ankle injury late in the game sidelining the outside linebacker for the week. Expected to return to practice this past Wednesday, it remains unclear if the senior will be ready to go come Saturday.
Bob Stoops recognizes the importance of Bond on the field stating to John Shinn and the Norman Transcript "P.L. didn't hurt us the other night. He did a lot of good things. If he has to play, we feel very confident in him as a player, but Devante's a playmaker, you know what I mean? Those are guys that you need."
Jordan Thomas - Expected To Play - On a cheap shot from Armanti Foreman in Dallas, Thomas came up holding his shoulder. However, the defensive back told NewsOK's Jason Kersey he is feeling a lot better. While there's talent behind the starting corner, it's no secret Thomas remains the best of the bunch.
