The Cowboys will be without a host of players against Tulsa on Saturday.
Although quarterback Spencer Sanders is set to make his season debut, he will be without some top targets, according to OSU’s pregame radio show. Oklahoma State receiver Tay Martin, who had 107 receiving yards and a touchdown last week, is questionable for Saturday’s game with an ankle injury. Robert Allen said later on the show he thinks Martin will be held out. He suffered the injury in the second quarter of the Missouri State game.
In Martin’s place, expect freshman Jaden Bray to slot in at OSU’s Z position. In his first collegiate game last weekend, Bray had two catches for 52 yards.
Braydon Johnson will also be out. Johnson moved to the slot ahead of this season. He had two catches for two yards last weekend and also had a carry for 13 yards.
Starting linebacker Devin Harper will also miss the Tulsa game. Harper was in a boot postgame last weekend. He had nine tackles against Missouri State, including 1.5 sacks. Expect sophomore Mason Cobb to start in his spot. Cobb had a sack against Missouri State.
Hunter Woodard, who was listed as OSU’s starting right guard on the team’s first depth chart of the season, didn’t play against Missouri State, and he won’t play again Saturday. Cole Birmingham, who started in Woodard’s place last week, is also expected to miss Saturday’s game in COVID protocol.
It’s not all doom and gloom for the Pokes, though, defensive tackle Israel Antwine is expected to play Saturday after missing last week’s game, as is safety Thomas Harper. Harper is expected to contribute heavily in the first half with Tre Sterling missing the half because of a targeting call last week.
