Oklahoma LB Caleb Kelly Suffers Knee Injury – Believed to be Torn ACL

Oklahoma LB Caleb Kelly Suffers Knee Injury – Believed to be Torn ACL

Season-ending injuries during fall camp is something every team around the country hopes to avoid but rarely do.

Last year, Oklahoma was bitten by a season-ending injury to defensive back Tre Norwood – this year it looks like senior linebacker Caleb Kelly is the one who has suffered an unfortunate injury.

Per SoonerScoop, Kelly suffered a knee injury and the indication is that it is likely a torn ACL.

Kelly has had a very unusual career in Norman, bursting onto the scene early on as an apparent leader of the defense for years to come.

He slowly faded back in playing time before becoming a large contributor once again last season.

He was undoubtedly expected to be a big part of Alex Grinch’s defense in 2020, and the Sooners will now have to find a way to replace his production.

The expectations from guys like Nik Bonitto, Dashaun White, Brian Asamoah, Jon-Michael Terry, among others will now be understandably risen.
