An ankle injury will sideline the University of Tulsa’s leading rusher. Running back Courtney Tennial sustained the injury during preseason drills, and will miss the entire 2007 season.

Tennial, a transfer from Oklahoma, rushed for 862 yards and 14 touchdowns last season, making him TU’s leading rusher.

Tennial will seek a waiver from the NCAA for a sixth year of eligibility. He redshirted at OU in 2003, didn’t play in ’04 while Adrian Peterson was making his Heisman Trophy bid, he transferred to Tulsa in 2005 and sat out, per NCAA rules.
