Mark Stoops Shares an Optimistic Injury Report


The Bye Week eliminated Mark Stoops’ usual Monday-morning press conference, but Stoops still had time to talk to the Big Blue Nation on his call-in show.  He used the opportunity to share some optimistic news.

An injury has forced All-SEC linebacker Jordan Jones to the sidelines for the last four games.  The Cats did not practice today but Stoops said he hopes Jones will be back at practice some time this week.  That wasn’t all he had to share.

During the Missouri game, it felt like there was an injury every five plays.  The Cats were banged up and needed the Bye Week break.  Stoops does not believe there will be any players sidelined by injuries for next Saturday’s game at Mississippi State.

A completely healthy football team will make a big difference in Starkville.  We’ll learn more as we get closer to gameday.

    I think the coaches felt a 5-1 1st half without Jones. And setting him until miss st was a game he could be 100% healthy. Man a 100% healthy team at Starkville with 2 weeks prep time… we could very well get this W.
