Oklahoma redshirt freshman quarterback Trevor Knight didn't return for the second half of the team's Bedlam Series clash with Oklahoma State on Saturday due to an undisclosed injury.

Jake Trotter of ESPN reported Knight headed to the locker room early before halftime:

At this point, the exact injury and how severe it is remains unknown. More details should emerge after the rivalry game concludes.

Knight was coming off a solid showing against Kansas State which saw him complete 14 of 20 passes for 171 yards and a touchdown two weeks ago. He also rushed for 82 yards and a touchdown.

Most of his success against Oklahoma State in the first half came on the ground as he had 47 yards on 11 carries before being forced out of the game. He only attempted seven throws.

We'll have more information about the injury as it becomes available.
