Oklahoma football head coach Lincoln Riley revealed Friday that Sooners defensive back Tre Norwood will miss the entire 2019 season after suffering a non-contact injury.

According to ESPN’s Mark Schlabach (h/t Andrea Adelson of ESPN.com), Norwood suffered an injury to his knee during Monday’s practice.

Norwood started all 14 games last season, amassing 58 tackles (38 solo), one sack, one interception and five pass breakups. His pick came during the Sooners’ Big 12 championship win over the Texas Longhorns.

Per Adelson, the Sooners had big plans for the junior this season.

“Norwood is one of the most experienced and versatile players in the Oklahoma secondary, starting the last 19 games,” Adelson wrote. “He worked at cornerback, safety and nickelback in the spring and was expected to be a key player in the revamped defense new coordinator Alex Grinch is installing.”
