Oklahoma's Sooner Schooner is not expected to return in 2019, the school's associate AD Kenny Mossman told the OU Daily on Tuesday.

"We will repair the damaged Schooner and its future use will be for static display," Mossman said in the statement. "It is possible that it will be back at a game this season, but it will not run. We also are in the process of having a new Schooner constructed. There is no timetable yet for when it will be ready. I would anticipate having it in time for the spring game."

The Sooner Schooner flipped on the field during Oklahoma's win over West Virginia on Saturday, with people riding the wagon thrown onto the field before the carriage fell on top of them. 

Oklahoma reported nobody was seriously injured in the accident.

Oklahoma has two home games left without the Schooner in 2019. The Sooners will travel to Kansas State on Oct. 26, with their next home game against Iowa State on Nov. 9.
