The Oklahoma linebacking corps took a serious hit on Monday as Travis Lewis went down with a broken foot early in the Sooners' fall camp. Lewis was injured sometime during Monday's practice, and x-rays revealed a broken bone in his left toe. Lewis is expected to miss eight weeks as he recovers from the injury.
Kenny Mossman passed along word of his injury and a peek at the Sooners' plans to fill the void left by Lewis' injury.
Travis Lewis will miss 8 weeks after suffering broken bone in toe of left foot. No surgery required. Corey Nelson to move into the pos.
Lewis started all 14 games at outside linebacker for the Sooners in 2010, earning second-team All-Big 12 honors for his efforts. His 109 tackles led the team and his three interceptions were third-best as he anchored the Sooners' defense throughout the year. Nelson, a sophomore, saw rotational action last season, with his most significant role coming on special teams.
