Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown left the Big 12 Championship Game against Texas on Saturday because of a foot injury, according to Max Olson of The Athletic.
Per Trevor Rogers of OUInsider, Brown did not return to the game, which No. 5 Oklahoma won 39-27.
Jason Kersey of The Athletic noted that Brown was in tears on the sidelines while a trainer was looking at his injury.
Brown was eventually taken to the locker room on a cart, according to John E. Hoover of 107.9 The Franchise.
Michael Kinney tweeted video of Brown being carted off the field, while there were also photos of Brown on his way to the locker room:
The injury appeared to occur late in the third quarter with the game tied 27-27. After catching a swing pass, Brown shook a tackle and stepped awkwardly before going down.
Former NFL wide receiver Donte Stallworth tweeted his well-wishes to Brown:
Prior to exiting the game, Brown had caught five passes for 54 yards against Texas.
The junior wideout entered Saturday's game as the Sooners' leading receiver with 70 receptions for 1,264 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Stewart Mandel of The Athletic noted that Brown returned to the sidelines on crutches.
Brown's injury thrust CeeDee Lamb into the No. 1 role for quarterback Kyler Murray, while Lee Morris, Nick Basquine and Myles Tease will move up in the pecking order as well.
Losing Brown was significant for Oklahoma not only in terms of the Big 12 Championship Game, but also further down the line if the No. 5 Sooners are selected for the College Football Playoff and he is unable to play.
