Oklahoma TE Jermaine Gresham suffered a knee injury in practice yesterday, according to Rivals, and may miss the BYU game due to the injury. It's apparently some sort of issue with his meniscus, the cartilage that provides padding within the knee joint. From Rivals:
I have heard a lot of different things as I have been tracking this down tonight. The most trusted source has said he is out 4-6 weeks and the staff hopes he will be back by the Texas game.
Others are saying he may be week-to-week.
I think the 4-6 weeks is most likely.
Every report I have heard says it is something to do with his meniscus. But at the very least, we can confirm that Gresham did suffer a knee injury in practice. The severity is yet to be determined. But the possibility of him playing this weekend against BYU is slim.
This is the Rivals guy, and they generally produce pretty credible intel on these things. Gresham was the number two receiver on the Sooners' last year, and is an integral part of the nearly unstoppable passing game the Sooner's rode to averaging over 50 points a game last year. Losing Gresham leaves the Sooners with sophomore Trent Ratterree at tight end, who has not caught a pass in a game for Oklahoma. So, um, yeah: going from an All-American TE to zero catches on the career is probably what you would call a dropoff in production here.
