Defensive tackle Jamarkus McFarland was back on the practice field Monday, despite sitting out most of Saturday’s game at Texas Tech with a bruise to his quad.

“He put a hat on it,” McFarland said. “Right above the knee. Nothing but bruises on the muscles. They were being cautious. We were doing good with the guys in the middle that were in so there was no reason to go back in.”

McFarland has taken plenty of grief for the play that knocked him out of the game. After intercepting a tipped screen pass, McFarland barreled to his right with the end zone in sight. But before he got there, Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege planted his helmet into McFarland’s knee, forcing McFarland to fumble the ball back to the Red Raiders.
