Houston's 62-13 win over Southern on Saturday has come at a price. Left tackle Ralph Oragwu will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL.

Oragwu suffered the injury during the second quarter.

Oragwu was actually moved to left tackle this season because of injuries Houston had already suffered on its offensive line. He started ten games at right tackle in 2012.

Oragwu is a fifth-year senior for the Cougars and he could apply for a sixth year of eligibility on a medical hardship waiver.

While Houston is still trying to figure out the status of some other injured lineman -- like left guard Ty Cloud -- Oragwu's probably replacement at left tackle is senior DeAnthony Sims.
