Report: OU’s Blake Bell out with concussion; Trevor Knight to start vs. Kansas State
Oklahoma’s starting quarterback Blake Bell will not play in Saturday’s game against Kansas State because of a concussion, meaning redshirt freshman Trevor Knight will make his first road start, according to Ryan Aber of The Oklahoman.
Bell was injured in the second quarter of last week’s 48-10 win over Iowa State after being hit in the head.
Knight beat out Bell in fall camp for the job and started the first two games of the season before being replaced by Bell during the win over West Virginia.
Knight ran for 123 yards and threw for 61 yards against Iowa State and has 309 rushing yards and a touchdown in five games this season. He has thrown for four touchdowns and three interceptions.
“The quarterback issue, it does us no possible good to define all of that today or Friday,” Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops said. “We’ll just go into the game and hopefully have all of them ready.”
