The Sooners are going to have to replace two key players on their offensive line this week.
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops announced Wednesday that center Josh Perkins will miss the rest of the season with a torn pectoral muscle.
The move comes after the center sustained a torn left pectora on Oct. 3 and missed two games last year.
Okies coach Josh Perkins (right) will miss next two games due to a torn right pectoria.
Perkins will likely miss the remainder of the 2016 season.
Perkins was one of two players that Stoops brought back for last year’s recruiting class, but he wasn’t invited to the bowl game last year due to NCAA rules.
Perkins said in the offseason that he wanted to play for Oklahoma again.
Perks has been a key part of Oklahoma’s success, averaging 9.9 tackles for loss in his three seasons at Oklahoma, including 6.5 sacks.
He also had 12 tackles for a loss last season.
He is the only Oklahoman with multiple 10-sack seasons in the past 10 years.
He missed three games last season with an injury and was suspended indefinitely in December.
Perk was ranked No. 6 in the 2015 recruiting class by Rivals and No. 21 in the 247Sports Composite.
He will turn 25 in March.
