ou’s Sam Bradford Injures Shoulder in Loss

In #3 oklahoma’s opening game of the 2009-2010 season, head coach Bob Stoops and his sooners took a big hit not only to their season but their run at a second straight national championship game.

Late in the first half against #20 BYU, oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford took a huge hit in the pocket, landing hard on his right, throwing shoulder, later diagnosed as a sprain to his AC joint – or a separated shoulder. He was knocked out of the game, and with redshirt freshman quarterback Landry Jones taking the snaps, the sooners lost the game 14-13.

It is unknown how long Bradford will be sidelined, but at a minimum he should miss the next two home games against Idaho State and Tulsa, and perhaps their fourth game at Miami. His return depends in large part on his rehabilitation, which will be more clearly defined after an MRI on Sunday.

With an opening weekend loss, as well as Bradford and tight end Jermaine Gresham’s injuries, the sooners will likely need to run the table in their remaining games to have a chance to make the Big 12 championship game, and Bradford’s hopes at repeating for the Heisman Trophy are all but over.
