Oklahoma redshirt sophomore running back Kennedy Brooks has not been working out with the team this summer due to off the field matters, sources close to the situation have told The Daily. This was first reported by 247Sports, which is behind a paywall.

The Daily has also learned that the Mansfield, Texas, native is not in the transfer portal. It is unclear when Brooks will return to team activities. The Daily reached out to the program at 1:12 p.m. Monday, but has not received an official comment on Brooks' absence. 

Brooks rushed for 1,056 yards and 12 touchdowns in the 2018-19 season, where he averaged 88 yards a game. Brooks is a valuable back behind junior running back Trey Sermon, who rushed for 947 yards and 13 touchdowns, averaging 5.8 yards per carry. Behind Brooks in line is sophomore T.J. Pledger, who rushed for 179 yards total in 2018.
