Pokes lose WR Anyiam for the season
By David Ubben
Oklahoma State receiver Hubert Anyiam will miss the rest of the season after he broke his foot in Saturday's 45-24 win over Missouri.
Anyiam caught one pass for 31 yards, but spent the second half on the sidelines in a boot after the injury.
You hate to see that for Anyiam, who played through a painful ankle injury for much of 2010. This, after leading the team in receiving in 2009 when Dez Bryant missed the season's final 10 games with an NCAA suspension.
This season, he had finally gotten going again, catching 10 passes in a game against Texas A&M and grabbing two touchdown passes against Kansas. He was third on the team with 27 catches for 370 yards and three touchdowns.
Now, the senior's career at Oklahoma is presumably over.
Oklahoma State's receiving corps is deep. Talents like Tracy Moore, Michael Harrison and Josh Stewart will have to be relied on as the next option behind Justin Blackmon and Josh Cooper. They can handle it.
Still, this is a hit for the Cowboys' offense and a tough break for Anyiam.
