According to a report, Oklahoma could find itself without two starters against Kansas State this week.

KOCO 5 Sports reports that running back Damien Williams and wide receiver Lacoltan Bester have been suspended for Saturday's game. Though the report does not give a reason why either player is reportedly suspended for the game.

The Tulsa World was able to confirm that Williams is indeed suspended, but could not get a confirmation on the suspension of Bester. However, it isn't known how long Williams will be out.

Williams' suspension is a big loss for an Oklahoma offense that's struggled at times this season. Williams is second on the team with 553 rushing yards this season. Williams leads the team with seven rushing touchdowns. He's also coming off his best performance of the season, rushing for 128 yards and two touchdowns on only 10 carries against Iowa State last week.

Further complicating matters for the Sooners offense is that Trevor Knight is expected to start at quarterback, as Blake Bell is dealing with a concussion that will keep him from playing.
