Mark Stoops is not a coach to go deep into injury reports. However, he shed some light on Jason Hatcher, Bud Dupree and Blake McClain after practice Wednesday.
On making Hatcher’s cast smaller: “I’m going to definitely try to cut that thing down a little bit, yeah. For sure. Looks a little bulky right now. He’s doing OK.”
On Dupree’s status for Saturday: “He hasn’t practiced. He has not. Has not practiced, so it doesn’t look good.”
On McClain continuing to wear a cast: “He’s good to go. He’s been – since whatever game that was when he dislocated it and came back; the Florida game, we talked about it. I think it’s just been bothering him since then. But he’s been good.”
What if Dupree can’t play: “Well, we’re working on some things, but Hatcher will get a amped-up role. We’re moving some guys around and getting the best options.”
