Oklahoma head football coach Bob Stoops
says starting linebacker Travis Lewis has broken his foot and will
miss up to eight weeks.
Stoops said in a news release Tuesday that Lewis broke a bone in
his left foot during Monday's practice. Stoops said sophomore
nickel back Corey Nelson will move to Lewis' spot at linebacker.
Stoops said the injury to Lewis is disappointing - but said the
team will adapt.
Lewis is a senior from San Antonio and has led OU in tackles
each of the past three seasons.
OU trainer Scott Anderson said Lewis' injury does not require
surgery and will be treated with rest and immobilization.
