Eldridge, English, Jones out for season

BY foxsports • November 10, 2009

Coach Bob Stoops said Tuesday that starting offensive lineman Jarvis Jones will miss the rest of the year with a fractured heel suffered during a 10-3 loss at Nebraska on Saturday.

Jones is the fifth starter the Sooners (5-4, 3-2 Big 12) have lost for the season.

Defensive end Auston English was scheduled to have surgery on an injured ankle tendon Tuesday and team captain Brody Eldridge is out the rest of the year with a neck injury. Stoops had initially described it as a shoulder sprain.

Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford and star tight end Jermaine Gresham had season-ending surgeries earlier this year.
