Oklahoma State’s receiving depth took a big hit on Friday.

It wasn’t all good news when Mike Gundy met with media following OSU’s win over Kansas State. He confirmed in his postgame press conference that junior wide receiver De’Zhaun Stribling will miss the remainder of the season due to an injury he sustained in practice last week.

“Stribling is done for the year,” Gundy said. “That was a tough break for us — found out a couple days ago.”

Stribling did not play in the Oklahoma State’s 29-21 win over Kansas State and was seen on the sideline with a cast on his left lower arm.

“He’s got a hand deal. He’s got a hand that’s not gonna work for a few months,” Gundy added.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound former Washington State transfer came into Friday second on the team with 14 catches for 198 yards and a touchdown. He leaves a big hole in the Cowboys’ lineup on the outside, but they have some options to replace him.

Stribling suffered a concussion in the early goings of the Cowboys’ loss to South Alabama and didn’t turn in any stats. But in the Pokes’ other three games he was productive.

Central Arkansas – 4 catches | 73 yards
Arizona State – 7 catches | 65 yards
Iowa State – 3 catches | 60 yards

In his place, the Cowboys had to depend on other guys to step up in their win on Friday.

Rashod Owens, who’s dealt with his fair share of injury setbacks during his time at OSU, had a career game, hauling in five catches on seven targets for 75 yards. Jaden Bray led the way with 77 yards on four catches. Brennan Presley had three catches for 34 yards. Talyn Shettron is listed as Stribling’s backup. He saw the field but didn’t record any catches.
