According to John Shinn of The Norman Transcript, Oklahoma will continue to be without two key defensive players for its game against TCU, as defensive tackle Matt Dimon and linebacker Tay Evans have been ruled out for Saturday’s affair.

Oklahoma head football coach Bob Stoops made the announcement after Wednesday’s practice. He also announced that running back Daniel Brooks will also miss Saturday’s game.

Both Dimon and Evans sustained injuries in the Sooners loss to Ohio State two weeks ago.

Dimon, a 6’2”, 275-pound senior defensive tackle from Katy, Texas had previously dealt with a concussion prior to getting injured in the Ohio State game. He has recorded just two tackles this season.

Evans, a 6’2”, 242-pound sophomore linebacker from Allen, Texas has recorded ten tackles on the season.

Brooks, a 5’8”, 190-pound senior running back from Port Lavaca, Texas has been battling injuries all season and has just two carries (for zero yards) on the season.

Oklahoma (1-2) came into the season amid much hope, but with losses to Houston and Ohio State, its College Football Playoff hopes are pretty much on life support. TCU comes into Saturday’s game ranked 21st in the latest Associated Press Top-25 poll and are 3-1 on the season.

Even though Oklahoma, which is coming off a bye week, is off to a rough start, it still has its eyes set on a Big 12 championship. Saturday’s clash could go a long way in helping either Oklahoma or TCU get a huge leg up in the race for Big 12 supremacy.
