Houston’s Ed Oliver Seen Crying His Eyes Out On The Sidelines During Game Against Memphis (VIDEO)

On Friday, the Houston Cougars had a 21-17 lead against the Memphis Tigers with Ed Oliver on the field for the first time since playing against Navy. The drama between the potential top-five NFL draft pick and Houston head coach Major Applewhite seemed to reach another level as Oliver did not play at all in the second half of that game.

The defensive lineman was seen standing on the sideline with his teammates, when he suddenly began to get emotional and start to cry.

It turns out that it wasn’t any controversy as Oliver suffered a setback to his knee injury and is expected to need a few weeks to recover.

Applewhite tried to squash any notion that Oliver had played his final game with the Cougars, which was widely speculated during Friday’s second half.
