Oklahoma State quarterback J.W. Walsh is
out for the season, according to coach Mike Gundy.
The redshirt freshman injured his knee Saturday in the Cowboys’ win over Iowa State but stayed in the game.
Walsh’s dad, John Walsh, the head coach at Denton Guyer High School, said his son needs about three to five weeks to recover. John Walsh said via text that surgery will not be required and that there was no ligament damage.
Oklahoma State (4-2, 2-1) host TCU (5-2, 2-2) at 2:30 p.m. Saturday in Stillwater, Okla.
Gundy told reporters on a conference call Sunday evening that Walsh was out for the rest of the season. Walsh completed 32 of 47 passes for 415 yards and a touchdown against Iowa State.
Walsh replaced true freshman Wes Lunt, who was injured in the Cowboys’ win over Louisiana-Lafayette Sept. 15. Lunt has yet to return in a game. Walsh has thrown for 1,467 yards and 10 touchdowns and rushed for 254 yards and three scores.
