Oklahoma quarterback Dillon Gabriel is out of the game after taking a blow to the head on a slide in the second quarter of the Sooners’ game against TCU.

With Oklahoma trailing 34-10 in the second quarter, Gabriel ran around the left end, slid feet-first, and was hit hard by TCU linebacker Jamoi Hodge, who lowered a shoulder into Gabriel’s helmet. Gabriel laid on the turf for several minutes as players on both teams had to be separated.

Hodge was flagged for targeting and ejected from the game.

Gabriel walked off the field with help and was replaced by Davis Beville, a 6-foot-6, 235-pound junior who transferred from Pitt this offseason.

Two plays later, the Sooners scored on a 20-yard run by Jovontae Barnes to cut the lead to 34-17.
