STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma State is losing starting linebacker Chris Collins for the rest of the season.

Coach Mike Gundy says Collins will undergo knee surgery within the week after being injured during the third quarter of Saturday's win over Kansas.

Collins earned the starting job despite being a freshman and not having played football in two years because of a court case that has yet to be resolved.

He's expected to be replaced in the starting lineup by Rodrik Johnson.
