    The one down note to Oklahoma's big win at Tulsa was the injury situation. Cornerback Zack Sanchez was hurt making a tackle. Bob Stoops downplayed the injury. X-Rays were negative but we'll know more about his situation in the coming days. Whether its a shoulder injury or arm no one willing to say but we'll know more perhaps Monday during the Bob Stoops press luncheon.Defensive end Charles Walker was also injured. The backup sprained a knee and looks like he could miss a couple of weeks.
