In Stillwater, Oklahoma, what should have been another memorable season has been interrupted by Spencer Sanders’ shoulder injury, which might not get better any time soon.
Due to a shoulder ailment, Sanders has been a game-time decision for the past few weeks. The condition worsened when Sanders started for the Cowboys in their 48-0 rout at Kansas State, but it also lost him last week’s game, a 37-16 loss to Kansas.
Will Sanders suit up for the home game against Iowa State on Saturday?
Latest Spencer Sanders Injury Update
The fact that team head coach Gundy gave no indication that Sanders will play this week raises concerns even though we don’t have proof of his condition, which appeared to be becoming worse over the previous few weeks.
Sanders’ potential season-long absence is already cause for alarm given that the possibility is even on the table. Without their top quarterback on the field, the Cowboys appeared out of sync and lost by 21 points after mishandling the ball four times. Garrett Rangel was selected by Gundy, and he completed 27 of his 40 throws for 304 yards. If Sanders is unable to play on Saturday, it is unknown who will start.
Given that Oklahoma State is a little home underdog versus Iowa State on Saturday, the odds favor Sanders being absent.
