NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma receiver Manuel Johnson won't play Saturday against Baylor after being knocked out in the Sooners' game against Texas Tech.

Johnson -- who has 23 catches for 255 yards -- was hospitalized after the game but returned home Sunday.

Fellow receiver Malcolm Kelly says his roommate has a bad concussion but is all right now. Kelly says Johnson came home laughing and joking.

Johnson had just caught a four-yard pass when he and Texas Tech's Chris Parker collided and hit helmets. Johnson had to be carted off the field and taken to a waiting ambulance.

Kelly says all remembered was getting tackled and then waking up in the X-ray room.

Coach Bob Stoops says there's no update on the status of tailback Adrian Peterson, who has missed four games with a broken collarbone.

He says Peterson -- who has been off-limits to reporters the past three weeks -- won't be playing this week.
