Texas Tech junior running back Eric Stephens is out for the rest of the season after suffering a knee dislocation in Saturday's game against Texas A&M, Tech announced Tuesday.
Stephens was on pace to become Tech's first 1,000-yard rusher since Ricky Williams did it in 1998. Stephens had racked up 570 yards on 109 carries through five games. He'd also scored eight touchdowns.
He has not scheduled surgery, according to the Tech release, and is expected to return for his senior season.
