Oklahoma LB Box out with back injury

Oklahoma junior linebacker Austin Box is expected to miss anywhere from 3-to-6 weeks with a back injury.

The Oklahoman reported Tuesday that Sooners head coach Bob Stoops revealed Box has a “disc issue” but that it was not a result of an injury.

Box, who recorded 33 tackles in 11 games a season ago for Oklahoma, was battling redshirt freshman Tom Wort for a starting spot at middle linebacker.

Oklahoma kicks off its 2010 slate at home against Utah State on September 4.
