From the looks of things, No. 2 Oklahoma will be without the services of two of its top pass-catchers against the Kansas Jayhawks.

OU radio sideline analyst Gabe Ikard reported that freshman wide receiver Mario Williams is out versus KU.

Ikard also said he would be surprised if senior wide receiver Mike Woods plays for the Sooners.

If that’s the case, it means Oklahoma is without two of its top four receiving yardage leaders. Woods is second on the team with 294 receiving yards on 25 grabs, while Williams has hauled in 24 passes for 219 receiving yards.

Maybe that just means a monster day for the Sooners’ leading pass-catcher. Sophomore Marvin Mims enters the Kansas game with 456 receiving yards on 21 receptions.

Oklahoma fans would be happy to see redshirt-sophomore Jadon Haselwood follow up his three-touchdown performance against TCU with another big showing against the Jayhawks. Haselwood finished last week with six receptions for 56 yards.

However it plays out, there’s no question it opens the door for other guys to shine as playmakers for OU.
