An Oklahoma Sooners football player suffered a serious facial injury reportedly after getting into a bar fight earlier this month.

Spencer Jones, a redshirt senior wide receiver and holder, needed surgery on his left orbital socket because of the incident, which occurred sometime between the late hours of Feb. 13 and the early hours of Feb. 14, the OU Daily reported Saturday. The paper identified the student-athlete as Jones.

Woodrow "Woody" Glass, an attorney for Ward and Glass L.L.P. who is representing Jones’ family, told the school’s student newspaper that the doctor who performed the surgery said that his client was "lucky he didn’t lose the eye altogether."

Glass said the cause of the fight between Jones and the unidentified man was still not immediately clear but insisted that his client was "trying to be a peacekeeper."
