Oklahoma State WR Jaden Bray injured in Bedlam; will redshirt rest of the season < Oklahoma

STILLWATER, Oklahoma — It’s been a difficult season for the Oklahoma State receiver Jaden Bray, who has appeared in just three games with a nagging hand injury. On Monday, Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy said the second wideout was injured again during Saturday’s Bedlam loss and will be redshirt for the remainder of the 2022 season.

“He’s out, so he’s wearing a red shirt. He’s out for the year,” Gundy said during his weekly press conference.

Bray appeared in just three games this season, facing off against Texas Tech, Iowa State and Oklahoma. He had five receptions for 54 yards and a carry that resulted in a two-yard loss.

Bray was one of the best returning receivers last season for Oklahoma State and should be a major contributor to the passing attack in 2022. However, Bray suffered an injury during fall camp that sidelined him for the first four games of the season before making his debut against Texas Tech on Oct. 8.

Bray missed the next four games before returning to the lineup for the Cowboys’ games against Iowa State and Oklahoma in the final two weeks. Having only played in three games, Bray is allowed to play as a redshirt this season and has three years left of the season.

Prior to the 2018 season, the NCAA Division I Council approved a proposal that would allow student-athletes in college football to play in up to four games without losing a year of eligibility.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound wideout had 13 receptions for 250 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games played as a true freshman in 2021. Bray averaged 19.2 yards per catch, the most of any Cowboys receiver with at least five catches last season. He had three receptions for 52 yards against Baylor in last December’s Big 12 Championship Game.

Bray was rated a three star prospect from Norman, Okla. in the 2021 recruiting class. He was the #135 receiver nationally and was considered the #15 recruit regardless of his position in Oklahoma.

Bray signed with Oklahoma State through additional offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Arkansas State, Eastern Michigan, New Mexico, North Texas and SMU
