09/11/18 - Rodney Anderson, rJr, Oklahoma, 6-1, 218 (DS#1 RB)[Newsfeed] Oklahoma star running back Rodney Anderson is out for the season with a right knee injury. The school made the announcement in a news release Sunday night. Anderson got up slowly after a 10-yard run on the final play of the first quarter Saturday against UCLA. The preseason All-Big 12 selection limped off the field on his own, and trainers tended to him before he headed to the locker room. This is the third season-ending injury of Anderson's career. He suffered a broken leg in the second game of the 2015 season, and a neck injury sidelined him for the 2016 season. The sixth-ranked Sooners will be without one of their best players heading into their game Saturdayat Iowa State.
"We're heartbroken for him," Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said in a statement. "He's overcome so much in his career, and if anybody can do it again, it's Rodney." Anderson didn't start until the middle of last season, but he ran for 1,161 yards and 13 touchdowns and caught five touchdown passes and helped the Sooners reach the College Football Playoff. He ran for 201 yards in the Rose Bowl against Georgia. "He's played a lot of great football and has a lot more ahead of him," Riley said. "He's just a tremendous person and player and we'll miss him on the field. But we know he'll be with us every step of the way as a team captain, and that other players will step up in his place." - AP College Football

Jones threw for three touchdowns before getting knocked out of the game, and the Blue Devils beat Northwestern 21-7 on Saturday. Coach David Cutcliffe said it "doesn't look great" and was bracing for his quarterback to miss a big chunk of time. He added Jones would be examined when the team returned home. Cutcliffe doesn't expect star cornerback Mark Gilbert to return anytime soon, either, after he exited with an injury to the left hip area in the second quarter. Those were two big losses on a day when the Blue Devils (2-0) beat the Wildcats (1-1) again after pounding them at home last year. Jones passed for three TDs in the second quarter but left the game after he was sacked by Joe Gaziano at the end of the third. Quentin Harris played the fourth. - AP College Football
