Oklahoma receiver Dejuan Miller needs surgery on his injured right knee and will miss the rest of the season, the university announced.
The third-ranked Sooners (6-0, 2-0 Big 12) said Thursday that Miller tore his meniscus during practice on Tuesday and will need about five months to recover from surgery.
Oklahoma plays at No. 18 Missouri (6-0, 2-0) on Saturday night.
Miller has played in all six games this year, and made his first start of the season in Oklahoma’s 52-0 shutout against Iowa State on Saturday night.
At 6-foot-4, the junior from New Jersey is the tallest member of the Sooners’ receiving corps. He has 15 catches and ranks third on the team with 199 yards receiving this season.
