Oklahoma’s Rodney Anderson Out for Season

Oklahoma Sooners junior running back Rodney Anderson will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, according to ESPN’s Jake Trotter.

“We’re heartbroken for him,” Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said in a statement released by the school officially announcing the injury.

“He’s overcome so much in his career, and if anybody can do it again it’s Rodney. He’s played a lot of great football and has a lot more ahead of him. He’s just a tremendous person and player, and we’ll miss him on the field. But we know he’ll be with us every step of the way as a team captain and that other players will step up in his place.”

This will mark Anderson’s third season-ending injury at Oklahoma, who was lost for the 2015 season due to a broken leg and suffered a fractured vertebra in his neck to miss all of 2016.

Oklahoma will now turn to Trey Sermon to carrying the rushing load.
