Oklahoma S Delarrin Turner-Yell will not play in Peach Bowl due to broken collarbone

Lincoln Riley

The Oklahoma Sooners are going to be very short-handed when facing LSU in the College Football Playoff semifinal.

Starting safety Delarrin Turner-Yell will not play in the Peach Bowl after suffering a broken collarbone, leaving Oklahoma without one of its best and steadiest defenders.

Oklahoma’s sophomore starter had 75 total tackles this season, including 5.5 for a loss. Beyond being a key player in the Sooner defense, his absence will also expose a safety depth issue. Turner-Yell’s replacement, Justin Broiles, is a little-used sophomore who only has 15 tackles all season.

Add in the fact that three other players, including another defensive regular in Ronnie Perkins, have been suspended for the game, and Oklahoma will be significantly shorthanded in a game where they can hardly afford to miss key players.
