STILLWATER, Okla. -- The Oklahoma State defense took a hit early in the third quarter when starting safety Lucien Antoine was injured and helped from the field.
Antoine remained down for a couple of minutes before walking to the sidelines under his own power along with Oklahoma State trainers.
It's a big loss for the Cowboys, who are already depleted after sophomore safety Markelle Martin didn't dress out for the game. And starting cornerbacks Perrish Cox and Terrance Anderson have been out of the lineup on Georgia's first drive with injuries and cramps.
It also means that freshman Daytawion Lowe will be pressed into duty in Antoine's spot in the first extended play of his career.
