In a position that is almost obsolete in the Oklahoma football offense, the Sooners lose tight end Taylor McNamara for the season due to a shoulder injury. McNamara is a former four-star true freshman and will undergo surgery to take care of the issue.
Head coach Bob Stoops said last night on his weekly radio show that McNamara will seek a medical redshirt in order to keep his four-year eligibility.
The loss of McNamara doesn’t really have an impact on the Sooners game plan or statistically considering he has only played in two games and has no catches recorded on the books. The only tight end that has had some touches this season is Brannon Green, with 3 and one touchdown.
The Sooners use of fullback Trey Millard has replaced seeing any TE on the field much for the Sooners. But even though there has been a lack of playing time for McNamara, it still bad to see a kid go out for the rest of the season.
Here’s to hoping he has a speedy recovery and the rest of the Sooners stay healthy over the course of the next 5 games.
