Oklahoma RB Keith Ford out vs West Virginia


AP Sports Writer

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said running back Keith Ford will miss at least a week after breaking his fibula in a win over Tennessee.

Ford led the fourth-ranked Sooners with 194 yards rushing through three games and was one of the team's top receivers with 100 yards on six catches. He leads the team with five touchdowns rushing and caught a 23-yard touchdown pass in Saturday's 34-10 win over Tennessee.

Stoops said during a conference call that it is a small, slight fracture on a non-weight bearing bone that could keep him out for two to three weeks.

Alex Ross and Samaje Perine will pick up Ford's carries, starting Saturday at West Virginia.
