Oklahoma State down starting RB, another limited

-

The Oklahoma State Cowboys’ running game has struggled mightily this season. Their top rusher, Chris Carson, has only gone for 274 yards and three touchdowns in four games.

Rennie Childs has come in and done a fairly good job for the Cowboys as he has rushed for an average of 4.2 yards per carry on 42 attempts. However, the Cowboys could be looking at implementing a new starter this weekend when they face off against the Kansas State Wildcats.

According to SB Nation, Childs suffered a concussion during practice on Thursday and he will miss the game on Saturday. Carson has been dealing with some sort of leg injury for a few weeks now and he is slated to be limited on Saturday as well.

Right now, it is unlikely that Carson will start, but there is a small chance that he will. Jeff Carr, the third running back on the depth chart, is expected to be the starter this weekend. He has rushed for only 51 yards on ten carries this year.

It looks like the Cowboys will have to rely on J.W. Walsh or Mason Rudolph to lead the passing game this weekend. That has been their strong point of the team this year anyway.

The Cowboys and Wildcats kick off in Stillwater on Saturday at 4:00 p.m. and the game will be televised on Fox Sports 1.
