After it appeared the Samaje Perine would be good to go after pulling a muscle against Kansas State, Bob Stoops has announced that Samaje Perine will be out for two to three weeks.
Samaje Perine will be out at least two weeks, maybe three #Sooners— Ryan Aber (@ryaber) October 17, 2016
As of an hour ago, I was speculating that Perine would break the OU career rushing record against Kansas in two weeks. That will obviously not be the case with this news.
This leaves OU with two scholarship halfbacks in Joe Mixon and Abdul Adams. Mixon will definitely get the majority of the work and will have an opportunity to post some insane numbers, but I’m interested to see a bit more of Abdul Adams. He’s shown flashes of brilliance against K-State and UL-Monroe, and I think the true freshman will definitely have an opportunity to shine against the likes of Texas Tech and Kansas.
Anyway, I hope Samaje gets better sooner rather than later. OU may be able to get by without him at the moment, but the Sooners will need him at 100% for the stretch run (which is probably why he’s being kept out now).
