Insight Bowl 2011: Sooners Not Concerned With Shortage At Wide Receiver

The Oklahoma Sooners will be without wide receivers Ryan Brolyes (knee) and Jaz Reynolds (kidney) when they take on the Iowa Hawkeyes in Friday night's Insight Bowl.

Broyles led the Sooners with 83 receptions, 1,157 yards and 10 touchdowns, while Reynolds was third on the team with 41 catches for 715 yards and five touchdowns. Though 124 receptions, 1,872 yards and 15 touchdowns will be in street clothes, head coach Bob Stoops is not concerned, John Hoover of Tulsa World reports.

"There's still plenty of guys there," Stoops said. "When you have Kenny (Stills) and Dejuan (Miller) and Trey (Franks) and Kameel (Jackson), they've all played a ton of football and there's four of them."

To offset the lack of wide receivers, the Sooners are expected to use more tight ends against the Hawkeyes.
