Sooners lose key leader for season to knee injury

(Continued)

MOORE —

Offensive coordinator Josh Heupel knows how hard it will be to replace everything Millard brings to the team.

“All I can say about Trey is he is the best in the country in doing what he does,” Heupel said. “It’s been that way for a long time. We’re going to miss him. Other guys are going to have to step up and play well.”

The Sooners have already been in next-man-up mode with the losses of Corey Nelson, Jordan Phillips and several other players. The addition of Millard to the walking wounded list just makes the rest of the team want to fight even harder for them.

“He’s the heart and soul of this team,” Ikard said. “We’re going to miss him a lot and we’re going to have to make some serious adjustments on the offensive side of the football without No. 33 out there. We are going to have to play extremely well on both sides of the football. Everyone is going to have to do their job to win this conference. We’ve got the meat of our schedule left. With this game and Baylor and Okie State, those teams are very, very good on both sides of the football.”
