NORMAN, Okla. — Oklahoma entered the offseason believing the depth of its offensive line would be one of the major strengths. That has changed in the preseason.

On Monday, OU Coach Bob Stoops confirmed that right guard Tyler Evans tore the ACL in his right knee and is out for the season.

“We feel badly for Tyler and will certainly encourage him through the surgery and rehab,” the coach said in a statement released Monday night.

Evans was at Monday morning’s practice, but was on crutches. He had an MRI on his right knee in the afternoon.

With the diagnosis, the Sooners lose a senior who has started 29 games dating back to 2009 and has played in 38 games.
