Coach Bob Stoops revealed on Wednesday that Oklahoma corner back Jordan Parker will be held out of the remainder of spring practice after suffering a stress fracture in his left foot. Parker sustained the injury last week, and is expected back by June for workouts.
This isn’t the first time the Parker, a sophomore, has missed some time. He missed work outs before his freshman season last year as he recovered from heart surgery. Thankfully, it isn’t as serious this time around.
Parker played in 10 games last season, and eventually became the starter after Parrish Cobb and Michiah Quick suffered injuries. He recorded 36 tackles, including one tackle for a loss. He also forced a fumble against Baylor.
In Parker’s absence, freshman Justin Broiles and sophomore Parnell Motley should get some more reps.
