Oklahoma DB Norwood out for the season
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma defensive back Tre Norwood is out for the season with an undisclosed injury.
Coach Lincoln Riley made the announcement Friday.
Norwood started all 14 games last season and was the projected starter at nickel back this season. Riley said the junior will be missed because of his experience and versatility, including his play on special teams.
Last season, Norwood tied for fifth on the team with 58 tackles last season. He had an interception in the final minute of last season’s Big 12 title game victory over Texas and five tackles in the College Football Playoff loss to Alabama.
Riley said Brendan Radley-Hiles, Chanse Sylvie and Jeremiah Criddell all could fill the role.
