Oklahoma's TE Gresham Out for Saturday

OU's starting tight end, Jermaine Gresham, injured his knee on Tuesday and will miss Saturday's game. Gresham is Oklahoma's all-time leading tight end touchdown and receiving yards leader, and had a phenomenal season last year with 66 receptions for 950 yards and 14 touchdowns. He was a Sporting News 1st Team All-American in 2008 and virtually an unanimous 2009 Preseason 1st Team All-American. Did I mention he's a Julius Peppers-esque freak at 6'6'' and 261 lbs?

This is a HUGE break for the BYU defense. Brody Eldridge, OU's projected starting center, will more than likely move over to tight end in Gresham's absence. If not, the position will be filled by sophomore backup TE, Trent Ratterree.
