The news, from ESPN:
Fields, the Associated Press' reigning Big 12 defensive player of the year, will seek a medical redshirt. If he gets one, Fields would still have three years of eligibility remaining.
Fields suffered the foot injury in TCU's third game, a meeting at Texas Tech. He tried to return last weekend at Oklahoma, but was ineffective.
GOOD: Will allow us to grow up other weapons and luckily Lathan/others are starting to do that already.
BAD: You just lost an amazing talent at DE for the rest of the year.
The defense was great without him, but man... Losing a weapon like this will challenge the already shaky depth at defensive end, no bueno.
