Ross falls behind on Sooner RB depth chart

What's going on with Alex Ross? As expected, Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine will be in the backfield when the Sooners take the field Saturday against Akron, but the situation with Ross is curious. Ross, an All-Big 12 kickoff returner, is not even listed at running back. A season ago, Ross started the first game of the year for the Sooners. He also averaged 6.8 yards per carry, but he...
