No. 3 Sooners lose WR Miller for season

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma receiver Dejuan Miller will need surgery on his injured right knee and will miss the rest of the season.

The third-ranked Sooners (6-0, 2-0 Big 12) announced Thursday that Miller tore his meniscus during practice on Tuesday and will need about five months to recover from surgery.

Oklahoma plays at No. 18 Missouri (6-0, 2-0) on Saturday night.

Miller has played in all six games this year, and made his first start of the season in Oklahoma's 52-0 shutout against Iowa State on Saturday night.

At 6-foot-4, the junior from New Jersey is the tallest member of the Sooners' receiving corps. He has 15 catches and ranks third on the team with 199 yards receiving this season.
