NORMAN, Okla. – University of  Oklahoma Football Coach Bob Stoops says Trevor Knight will not play Saturday in the Bedlam game.

Knight has missed Oklahoma’s last two games after being diagnosed with a condition known as transient quadripilegia, according to CBS Sports.

Knight suffered the  injury and was carted off the field in the fourth quarter against Baylor on Nov. 8 after a big hit by defensive lineman Shawn Oakman.

Transient quadripilegia is a cervical spine injury normally caused by a hyperextension of the neck, and can lead to numbness, tingling or even loss of sensation on both sides of the body.

Redshirt freshman Cody Thomas took his place in Oklahoma’s last two games, and will fill in for Knight for the Bedlam game against OSU.

Stoops did say that it’s possible Knight could return for Oklahoma’s bowl game but it’s too hard to predict at this time.

The University of Oklahoma Sooners will take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Dec. 6.

Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. at Gaylord Family -Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

Bedlam will be televised on FS1.
