NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -Oklahoma cornerback Reggie Smith has a broken big toe on his right foot and will not be play when the third-ranked Sooners face No. 11 West Virginia in the Fiesta Bowl.
Trainer Scott Anderson said Thursday that Smith, an all-conference selection as a defensive back, would not be healed in time to play in the Jan. 2 game.
Smith, a junior, has played in all 39 of Oklahoma's games since arriving on campus as a highly-touted recruit from Edmond Santa Fe High School. He ranks fourth on the Sooners (11-2) with 78 tackles and also has three interceptions. He returned his lone fumble recovery of the season 61 yards for a touchdown against Miami.
However, Smith is more than just a cornerback. He is also Oklahoma's top punt returner, and he has returned one punt for a touchdown in his college career.
Fellow cornerback Dominique Franks replaced Smith on defense and as the Sooners' punt returner after Smith was injured in the victory against Missouri in the Big 12 championship game.
