During the Oklahoma Sooners’ embarrassing loss to Ohio State last weekend, offensive lineman Cody Ford suffered a broken fibula. On Monday, head coach Bob Stoops announced the severity of the injury.
According to Stoops, Ford will miss most of the season after undergoing surgery to repair his broken leg.
Left guard Cody Ford had surgery Sunday morning and will likely be out the rest of the regular season.

When Ford, who was the team’s starting left guard, left the Ohio State game in the first quarter, center Jonathan Alvarez moved over to fill the void while Erick Wren took over at center.
There is no word on whether Oklahoma will use that same strategy when they return to action or if sophomore Ben Powers, who is listed as Ford’s backup on the team’s official depth chart, will get the call.
Oklahoma is off this weekend before returning on Oct. 1 to face TCU.
