Drew Barker was carted off to the locker room after tossing an interception on the Cats’ first possession and he did not return to the field.
When asked for an update on Barker in the postgame press conference, Stoops said, “I don’t know what the situation is. I’m not going to make any decision like that right now, obviously. He’s hurt. He has an injured back. He did go to the hospital to get it examined.”
Stoops believes Barker took a hard shot on the first play, before making “a very poor throw.”
