Heisman Trophy Winners Return This Weekend
Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Sam Bradford hasn’t played in weeks and Florida Gator quarterback Tim Tebow was knocked out of their 4th game with a concussion. Both players are former Heisman winners and with a little luck both players will suit up and lead their teams on Saturday.
Bradford has missed Oklahoma’s last three games with a sprained right shoulder (his throwing shoulder). The Sooners are two weeks out from their big rivalry game against Texas. It would be great if he could get in some game time work before the Texas game. “That definitely is important and something I’ve talked to [Oklahoma quarterbacks coach Josh] Heupel about,” Bradford said. “To get a game before Texas would definitely be beneficial for me and the offense.”
The Sooners are expected to announce on Thursday if Bradford will be available.
Tim Tebow of the Florida Gators has had about 10 days of rest since he was knocked out of the Kentucky game with a concussion. We just got word that Tim is at the Gator practice today in full pads and is taking non contact reps with the team. This is a very good sign he will be starting on Saturday night when the Gators travel to Baton Rouge.
