OSU football: Spencer Sanders' return doubtful with 'lower extremity' injury

STILLWATER -- Oklahoma State quarterback Spencer Sanders limped off the field in the first quarter on Saturday and is doubtful to return, according to OSU officials.

Sanders initially suffered the injury on OSU's opening drive, which ended with a field goal to give the Pokes a 3-0 lead. On the next series, Sanders and running back Chuba Hubbard had a bad handoff exchange resulting in a fumble. 

Sanders limped off the field with what OSU termed a "lower extremity injury" after he was examined in the locker room.

Junior-college transfer Ethan Bullock entered in place of Sanders.
