Oklahoma State WR Patrick McKaufman Out for 2018 After Suffering ACL Injury

McKaufman was expected to play a key role in the OSU offense in 2018.



Oklahoma State receiver Patrick McKaufman suffered an ACL injury and will miss the entirety of the 2018-19 football season.

McKaufman, a redshirt sophomore entering his second season with the football program, announced the news on his Instagram page Thursday. The Tulsa World first reported the news.

In his post, McKaufman said he will undergo surgery to repair the damage and hopes to begin his six-month rehab as soon as possible.

McKaufman, a 6-foot-6 talent originally out of Douglass High School in Oklahoma City, joined the program a year ago after transferring from NEO.

With the Cowboys reloading at receiver this season, it’s likely McKaufman would’ve seen action throughout the year, especially given his large frame.

OSU’s projected four starters at receiver are Tyron Johnson, Tylan Wallace, Dillon Stoner and Jalen McCleskey based off a depth chart released Friday, but McKaufman seemed to be in the group just behind those guys with players such as Landon Wolf and LC Greenwood.

PFB talked with McKaufman at OSU’s media day on Aug. 4 where he said this season he saw himself, “Fulfilling the role Marcell (Ateman) left for me to fill, just high-pointing balls and being the big man that I should be.”

Oklahoma State will kick off its 2018 campaign on Thursday night, Aug. 30, against Missouri State.
