NORMAN, Okla. - Running back Damien Williams is no longer with the Oklahoma football team, coach Bob Stoops announced Monday afternoon.
 
Williams, who has rushed for 18 touchdowns in the past two seasons and has more than 500 yards rushing this year, will not play the final two games of the season.

Williams had been suspended previously this season, missing the Tulsa game and the game last week against Kansas State.
 
The news did not go over well with former Sooners Kenny Stills and Tony Jefferson, both of who are in the NFL now.
 
"Like he couldn't have just finished his college career," Jefferson tweeted Monday afternoon. Jefferson also said this.
 
Stills said, "What a car salesman," as well as this. He even got a Twitter response from former Oklahoma defensive lineman Dvoracek. You can see that here.
 
Stills has 22 catches for 470 yards and four touchdowns this year for the Saints. Jefferson has 17 tackles and a forced fumble for the Cardinals.

Brennan Clay ran for 200 yards last week against Kansas State in the 41-31 victory.
