Calvin Bundage is recovering from a back strain and didn't play against Oregon State. 

Coach Mike Gundy isn’t sure whether Calvin Bundage will play or sit out when the Oklahoma State football team faces McNeese State on Saturday.

“We might hold him out again this week,” Gundy said. “Just depends on how he’s feeling.”

Bundage, a senior linebacker from Edmond, is recovering from a back strain and didn’t travel with the Cowboys to Corvallis, Oregon, in their opener against Oregon State.

“Calvin had a setback about 10 days ago, and so we held him out,” Gundy said.

Gundy said he won’t receive health updates about players until Tuesday, but Bundage doesn’t need surgery.

“It’s in a pain tolerance mode, and those things are hard to measure,” Gundy said.

For the second straight week, Malcolm Rodriguez is listed as a starting linebacker on the depth chart with Bundage behind him. The chart has an "or" between Bundage and Na'drian Dizadare, a freshman from Shreveport, Louisiana.

Rodriguez, a junior from Wagoner, logged nine tackles against Oregon State.
