Early in the second quarter of Oklahoma’ 52-7 win over Tulsa, Sooners cornerbackZack Sanchez got the worst of a confluence of three players.
Sanchez, teammate Quentin Hayes and Tulsa receiver Keevan Lucas collided on Lucas’ catch and Sanchez suffered an apparent right shoulder injury.
He stayed on the ground for a time before walking off and eventually to the locker room.
He returned to the sidelines in the second half but without a uniform and with his arm in a sling.
“Zack checked out OK,” Sooners coach Bob Stoops said. “They x-rayed him and everything was OK, so hopefully that won’t last long.”
In the second half, defensive end Charles Walker suffered a sprained knee that is likely to keep him sidelined for two or three weeks.
Defensive end Matt Dimon and defensive tackle Jordan Wade also missed the game. Stoops said he hoped to have both back for next week’s game against Tennessee.
