Oklahoma defensive tackle Matt Romar to miss Texas game

The Oklahoma Sooners appear to be missing senior defensive tackle Matt Romar heading into the Red River Rivalry.

DieHards.com’s John Shinn reports Romar is not in uniform during the Sooners’ warmups at the Cotton Bowl.

Romar missed last week’s loss to Iowa State  and the Baylor win, as well. The senior is battling an undisclosed injury.

In 2016, Romar was a valuable substitute for the Oklahoma defensive line. He posted 17 tackles and 2.5 sacks.

He started the first three games of the season before suffering the injury.

The Sooners will need to find production to make up for Romar on the line. Texas has a solid running game, and with Oklahoma already struggling at linebacker, they can’t afford more injuries up front.
