Don't expect any major announcements on Sam Bradford's sprained right shoulder today.
Offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson said that the Oklahoma doctors and training staff were spending the day gathering information about the injuries and treatment options for Bradford and for tight end Jermaine Gresham (knee cartilage). An Oklahoma spokesman confirmed that Bradford underwent an MRI upon his return to Norman, although the results were not immediately released.
Wilson said that Oklahoma was not going to make any rush judgments about Bradford and Gresham, and "we want to make certain their best interests are taken into consideration."
Bradford was injured with seven seconds remaining in the first half during a 14-13 loss to BYU when Coleby Clawson sent him to the turf with a hard but clean hit. Without the defending Heisman Trophy winner, the Oklahoma offense sputtered in the second half, even coach Bob Stoops praised redshirt freshman backup Landry Jones.
The general recovery for a sprained AC joint is two to four weeks, although surgery can be necessary in severe cases. BYU quarterback Max Hall said after the game that he suffered a sprained shoulder in 2007 and played the next week, leading a win over Utah.
If there's good news for Oklahoma, it lies with the schedule. The Sooners face Idaho State next Saturday and Tulsa on Sept. 19 before traveling to Miami on Oct. 3.
