OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahoma running back DeMarco Murray will miss the 10th-ranked Sooners' rivalry game against Oklahoma State this week after dislocating his kneecap.

Sooners coach Bob Stoops made the announcement Monday on the Big 12 coaches' conference call.

Murray, who leads the Sooners (9-2, 5-2 Big 12) with 764 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns, was hurt while trying to recover an onside kick in the final minute of Oklahoma's 34-27 loss at Texas Tech on Saturday.

Murray was among four Oklahoma players who were injured against Texas Tech. Quarterback Sam Bradford sustained a concussion, and Stoops said the Sooners will see how he reacts through the week before deciding whether he can play.

Receiver Adron Tennell tore his ACL and will miss the remainder of the season, and defensive end Alan Davis was also hurt.
