NORMAN, Okla. – University of Oklahoma head football coach Bob Stoops confirmed on Monday evening that senior offensive lineman Tyler Evans has suffered a torn ACL in his right knee.
“We feel badly for Tyler and will certainly encourage him through the surgery and rehab,” Stoops said. “Bronson Irwin has been playing well and we’re fortunate to have good depth. He’ll get a lot of reps in the preseason and we’ll be ready to go when the season gets here.”
Evans earned honorable mention All-Big 12 honors from AP and the coaches last season after starting 13 games at right guard. The Strafford, Mo., native has registered 29 career starts at that position for the Sooners.
