We were hoping for the best and expecting the worst when it came to the status of Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles' injured left knee, and we've gotten what we were expecting. According to John Hoover of the Tulsa World, Broyles has suffered a torn ACL in the knee and his season, and Oklahoma career, are over because of it.
Broyles suffered the injury in the third quarter of Oklahoma's 41-25 win over Texas A&M on Saturday. He planted on his left leg in an odd fashion after making a catch and turning upfield to gain more yards. He clutched the knee after being tackled and was then helped off the field before being seen in tears on the sideline.
Broyles finishes the season with 83 receptions for 1,157 yards and 10 touchdowns.
In his career Broyles has caught 347 passes for 4,586 yards and 45 touchdowns. The 347 receptions are more than any other player in NCAA history. Broyles was also a Biletnikof finalist last season and decided to come back to Oklahoma for another season even though he'd have been a first round pick in the NFL to try and win a national championship.
