Kevin Peterson has Knee Surgery, Expected Back for Opener



In the “well, I guess it could be worse” department, Kevin Peterson is out for two weeks after undergoing knee surgery. He’s supposed to be back for the opener on September 3 against Central Michigan.

“They took him in and did a scope on him,” Mike Gundy told the Tulsa World. “(Team doctors) weren’t sure if they needed to or not, but they decided to go ahead and do it. He’ll be out for a couple of weeks. We’ll bring him back at kind of a slow pace.”

No injury is good, but if you’re going to have one, a Kevin Peterson two-week knee scope on August 10 is about as nice as it gets. In fact, I don’t even care if he’s back for Central Michigan as long as he’s ready to roll on September 26 in Austin.

OSU is deep at corner — maybe deeper there than any other position on the field. It’s an injury that will be easy to absorb and, as Gundy mentioned, actually kind of nice for some guys to get some extra work.

Jordan Burton was also mildly injured for Monday’s practice.
