WACO, Texas -- Oklahoma defensive end Ronnell Lewis could miss the rest of the regular season after suffering a sprained MCL during the second quarter of OU’s 45-38 loss Saturday at Baylor.

“I would think that’s probably at least two or three weeks,” coach Bob Stoops said. “It will heal on its own. But it’ll take awhile.”

The injury occurred during the second quarter on a 55-yard pass play. As Lewis chased Baylor’s Kendall Wright from behind, he went down and immediately clutched his knee. Lewis was fitted with a brace and watched the second half in street clothes.

Along with fellow end Frank Alexander, Lewis has been OU’s best defensive player all season. He is third on the team with 59 tackles, second with 13 tackles for loss and tied for second with 5.5 sacks. Until Lewis returns, David King likely will start at end.
