sad news for Oklahoma Sooners due to……

Updated on injuries, Brent Venables says Andrel Anthony is out for the season.
Three starters for the Oklahoma Sooners were sidelined by injuries on Saturday. Brent Venables provided an update on each player on Monday night.

The good news is that Gentry Williams is cleared to proceed by Venables. McKade Mettauer will return “sooner rather than later” following a terrifying injury that required him to be carted off the field, according to Venables.

But there was more unfavorable news for the Sooners. Andrel Anthony, Oklahoma’s top receiver, will miss the remainder of the campaign due to injury. At the end of the third quarter, Anthony went down with what appeared to be a noncontact knee injury.

In his debut season for the crimson and cream, he has been enormous for the Sooners. It appeared as though he and Dillon Gabriel had bonded from the start of the game. For the Sooners, he has proven to be the most reliable deep threat.

This season, Anthony has 27 catches for 429 yards and a touchdown. The depth of the Sooners will need to step up to the plate. The player who came in for Anthony during the game and caught the winning touchdown pass was Nic Anderson.

The most likely contender to replace him in the starting lineup is him. With six touchdowns this season, Anderson leads the Sooners in scoring.

There was also a noticeable amount of Jayden Gibson. Brenen Thompson, who we saw against the Iowa State Cyclones but didn’t see last week, could be shown more as the deep threat.

Although Anthony is only a junior and will probably return for the upcoming campaign, it is a devastating blow for a player who is having a breakout year for Oklahoma. It is now the responsibility of his teammates to make up for his output loss.
