Practice report: OU shuffles line
October, 9, 2012
Wesley Hitt/Getty ImagesAustin Woods and the Oklahoma offensive line will have to shuffle again with the season-ending injury to Nila Kasitati.NORMAN, Okla. -- Through four games, the depth of Oklahoma’s interior offensive line has taken a substantial hit. Reserve guard Nila Kasitati became the latest injury casualty, tearing his ACL last weekend at Texas Tech. The Sooners had previously lost starters Ben Habern and Tyler Evans to season-ending injuries during the preseason.
With Kasitati also now lost for the season, the Sooners will lean on Austin Woods and Ty Darlington for depth.
But offensive line coach James Patton said Tuesday that starting right tackle Daryl Williams could move to guard in a pinch. If that happened, the Sooners would probably move Lane Johnson from left to right tackle, and bring in Tyrus Thompson in at left tackle.
