BREAKING: Spencer Sanders on the field warming up, will likely NOT START

Morgantown, West Virginia – Spencer Sanders, Oklahoma State’s starting quarterback, injured his ankle last week in the Cowboys’ opening game against Tulsa. Head Coach Mike Gundy said that Sanders would be in a boot until Wednesday and would be re-evaluated after that.  However, no word has come out until just now.

Sanders is currently on the field warming up with his team and throwing passes.  However, he is not running and doesn’t appear to be 100% healthy for today’s game.

According to multiple sources, Sanders will be available to play but will likely not start the game against the Mountaineers.  His availability is questionable for today and will almost certainly be used in emergency situations.

Instead, expect true freshman Shane Illingworth to get the start and play most of the game today.  Illingworth was 4-5 with 74 passing yards in last week’s game against Tulsa.  Look for West Virginia’s defense to bring the heat early and often against the Cowboys’ true freshman!
