Taylor’s surgery goes as planned
NORMAN — Oklahoma junior defensive tackle Adrian Taylor underwent surgery on his broken ankle Friday morning in Oklahoma City.

An OU official said the procedure went as planned.

Taylor broke the ankle while tackling Stanford running back Toby Gerhart during the first quarter of Thursday’s Sun Bowl.

Taylor has a long road of rehabilitation ahead in order to return for the 2010 season.

The break was so gruesome that CBS elected not to replay the injury on television.

Taylor had 37 tackles and 3.5sacks this season while earning honorable-mention All-Big 12 honors.
