STILLWATER – No. 7 Oklahoma State rode a strong defensive performance in the second half to a 41-31 win over Texas Tech. It was a grueling and physical game which featured hypothetically a full extra quarter of football as Texas Tech ran 104 offensive plays.

Several Cowboy players left the game due to injury at some point, with some going back in for the duration of the game and a few who stayed on the sidelines.

Here’s just a quick list of players who left the game due to injury.

WR Braydon Johnson: Head injury. The medical staff felt he needed to sit out the game, but he stayed suited up on the sideline for the entire game. Mike Gundy was asked about Johnson after the game and he wasn’t sure but emphasized that Johnson would be evaluated over the next few days.

OL Preston Wilson: Lower leg/ankle/foot injury. Wilson had to be helped off the field but was walking around after the game. The x-ray at halftime was negative and he came out suited up for the second half with a new tape job and a brace. After the staff decided to go with Joe Michalski, Wilson went and showered up and watched the rest of the game in street clothes and a boot on his foot. Mike Gundy said they would see where he was in a few days.

Several other offensive linemen left Boone Pickens Stadium wearing walking boots, but they were all players who finished the game.

CB Korie Black: Hamstring injury. Black left the game and didn’t finish. Status is unknown.

CB Demarco Jones: Arm/shoulder injury. Status is unknown.

LB Xavier Benson: Lower leg injury. Left the game for a brief period but returned and finished the game. Left the stadium wearing a walking boot.

QB Spencer Sanders: Shoulder/midsection. Had some discomfort following the game and had his shoulder wrapped in ice in the postgame press conference. He also took some shots to the midsection during the game.

Mike Gundy was asked during his press conference if he was concerned about some of the shots Spencer was taking, to which he responded with yes. Spencer, who was sitting on the stage off to the side, said “I’m a tough mother f***er.”

With what he’s done and how he’s played so far this season, I think we can all agree with Spencer on that point.

The Cowboys are going to try and get healthy as they have a tough road game against TCU next Saturday.

What a win. We are officially at the point in the season thi the o line is struggling to keep up. What a poor performance from that group. I'll ride it to the grave that we need to be better up front. Went from 2 deep to barely hanging on. No bye week to rest on going forward and we need to pray for health. We have a good team but we can't afford any setback

Demarco Jones should have gotten POW in my opinion for that fair catch signal on the onside kick.

Truly smart, smart high FB IQ play by Jones. And how about Bryson Green!! What a great WR. No doubt B. Johnson Is good, but it seems to me, BG has a better set of hands. We have plenty of options in the WR room. Too bad about so many injuries... Mid season football. We've our work cut out for us next week. Go Pokes

Tough report about all the injuries. TCU will be a great challenge. Tech was a hard nosed team. This is such a fun team to watch. I hope their health holds up.

Hard to know what TCU really amounts to at this point. They beat OU and KU. What that amounts to compared to Texas Tech who beat Texas and pushed OSU to the wire is hard to say. I'm thinking TT is better....but we're beat up too, so........

Bleh.... OU is playing without a QB, and TCU beat KU when they had their starting QB in.

Tech didn't beat Texas, Bjoin Robinson beat Texas, with their backup QB.

Tech played OSU with their THIRD STRING QB, and he shredded our butts like nobody before. If he doesn't get so injured that he can barely walk, I don't think we win that game.... the tale of two half's was the health of the Tech QB

I have no idea what lies ahead, but TCU is going to be probably the best team in the league. Sonny Dykes is the best play caller in the conference, and the Purple QB is flat out on fire... they play good defense too. ... and the game is in Ft Worth.

Saturday should separate the wheat from the chaff, that is for sure.

TCU amounts to EXCELLENT, it doesn't seem that hard to tell for me. (aside from OSU) Then Texas (especially with Ewers), KU with the starting QB is solid, not great. KState is solid, not great - too dependent on Martinez. OU is a much, much different team with Gabriel, but their defense is weak.

We're practically the only team that has not suffered QB controversy, and thank goodness, because I'm not sure how well we would fare playing with our backup QBs
