Injury Report: Oklahoma Sooners vs. #17 Clemson Tigers

facebooktwitterreddit

The Oklahoma Sooners have been soaking up the sun and good times in Orlando, Florida before they take the field Monday.

OU is currently a three-point favorite over the Clemson Tigers, but injuries could be a huge difference in this ball game.

Both Oklahoma and Clemson have dealt with health issues this season. However, OU could look closer to full strength than they have in roughly two months.

Oklahoma Sooners injury report:

Samaje Perine, running back — PROBABLE

Samaje has been practicing, and he should be good for the bowl game. Teammates have been saying he’s looking close to 100%, which is encouraging.

Trevor Knight, quarterback — PROBABLE

Knight appears to be the starter, but how Josh Heupel will use Knight remains to be seen. If the Sooners can Sugar Bowl Trevor, obviously you have to like OU’s chances.

Sterling Shepard, wide receiver — QUESTIONABLE

It’s still unclear if Shepard will play, but that nagging groin injury could force the coaches to not risk No. 3’s health.

Adam Shead, guard — QUESTIONABLE

Julian Wilson, cornerback — DOUBTFUL

It doesn’t look like Wilson or Grissom (below) will be able to play. This opens up opportunities for reserves to make an impact in the bowl game, but you really don’t like seeing less depth in the secondary or with the linebackers.

Geneo Grissom, linebacker — DOUBTFUL

Clemson Tigers injury report:

Deshaun Watson, quarterback — OUT

Watson is a dynamic playmaker, and a key reason to Clemson’s success in 2014. His back-up, Cole Stoudt, will have to find a way to replace his production on offense, which will not be an easy task. Watson played with an injury in the South Carolina game, but he underwent season-ending surgery earlier in the month.

Stanton Seckinger, tight end — OUT

Seckinger, a reserve tight end for Clemson, underwent season-ending surgery as well. He was injured in the South Carolina game, and he will not be available against the Sooners.
