Cowboys Dealing With a Pair of Injuries and the Return of an All-Big 12 Defender

November 13, 2021

STILLWATER – It’s moments before kickoff at Boone Pickens Stadium as No. 10 Oklahoma State prepares for the challenge from Big 12 rival TCU. The Cowboys will be without a pair of offensive starters in the contest. Left guard Josh Sills had an injury that occurred last Saturday against West Virginia but wasn’t discovered until Sunday. The medical staff eventually had Sills undergo an MRI and it revealed a foot injury that will keep him out a week or two. Sills should be back for sure in time for the Bedlam game on Nov. 27.

The same for Cowboy back Braden Cassity as he was injured early in the win over the Mountaineers. Cassity has an ankle injury, actually a high ankle sprain, but the prognosis is for him to be back at least in time for the game with Oklahoma, if not earlier.

There is good news on the injury front on the other side of the football. All-Big 12 safety Tre Sterling had the cast on his wrist modified and he can now play in game with the cast taped and cushioned with foam. Sterling did well in practice this week and will provide quality depth for the safety positions behind Jason Taylor II or Kolby Harvell-Peel.

Another note involves running back LD Brown as last week Dezmon Jackson was back from injury and got a carry in the West Virginia contest. Brown, who has been out since being injured in the win at Boise State, has been working out. It would appear that while Brown looked to be out for the rest of the season that he could be back in the next two weeks. Brown has told Pokes Report that he believes he is close to being cleared for play.

That's relatively good news on the injury front... Tech won't be easy, but having almost everybody available for the Bedlam game is certainly good news.

I was wondering about Illingworth, and why Bullock was the first off the bench last night.

Is he injured, or was Gundy just not looking to put the ball in the air and so gave Bullock and Gunnar the opportunity to hand the ball off.

I found the answer in the Stillwater News Press.

At the start of the fourth quarter, OSU led 42-3, comfortable enough to bring in third-string quarterback Ethan Bullock. Coach Mike Gundy said the Cowboys skipped second-string signal-caller Shane Illingworth because he still has an opportunity to redshirt.
