Not much has changed on the injury front.

STILLWATER — There isn’t much to update on the Cowboys’ injury report heading into an all-important regular-season finale.

Dave Hunziker reported that the Cowboys will still be without depth running back Elijah Collins. However, Hunziker said wide receiver Jaden Bray is “closer to 100%” after returning for limited snaps last week against Houston. The Cowboys have been without left guard Jason Brooks the past two games and three of the past four. Hunziker said on the pregame radio show that Brooks will miss the remainder of the season.

Starting with Bray: he started the first seven games of the season for the Cowboys before suffering an injury in Morgantown. Bray returned for OSU’s game in Houston last week, catching a 23-yard touchdown pass. He played just 15 snaps in that game, according to PFF. He has caught 28 passes for 372 yards and two touchdowns this season.

Without Brooks at left guard, expect more Cole Birmingham in what will be Birmingham’s senior day. Birmingham played 77 snaps last week, per PFF, where he was OSU’s highest-graded offensive lineman.

This will be the third straight game Collins has missed. A transfer from Michigan State, Collins has carried 30 times this season for 146 yards and two touchdowns. Expect Jaden Nixon to spell Ollie Gordon when Gordon needs a breather.

Oklahoma State and BYU kick off at 2:30 p.m. in Boone Pickens Stadium. The game will be televised on ABC. If the Cowboys win, they’ll play Texas in the Big 12 title game next week in Arlington.
