Oklahoma State wide receiver Josh Stewart will miss Saturday's game against Texas due to an ankle injury, leaving the Cowboys without arguably one of the most explosive players for Saturday's game with conference title implications.

According to the Oklahoman and other media outlets, Stewart did not make the trip to Austin with the team. Stewart suffered an ankle injury last week in the win against Kansas, and all week there has been a possibility that he might miss the game.

Stewart leads the Cowboys with 510 receiving yards on the season, but he has also run two punts back for touchdowns and leads the Big 12 with an average of 18.2 yards per punt return. Wide receivers David Glidden and Charlie Moore are Stewart's listed backups at the punt return position.

Texas enters the game undefeated in Big 12 play, with Texas Tech and Baylor left on the schedule. The Cowboys suffered a loss to West Virginia earlier in the season, but can force a tie for the Big 12 title and earn a BCS bid by winning out against Texas, Baylor and Oklahoma.
