Sam Bradford gave a live telephone interview on ESPN’s College GameDay on Saturday. It was short, but here’s what the injured Heisman winner had to say:
On when he’ll be back:
It’s really hard for me to answer that question, but everyone I talk to, there’s really not a certain timeline for as soon as I’ll be back. I’m just rehabbing as much as I can right now, and I guarantee that as soon as I’m ready to go, I’ll be back on that field.
Could it be longer than 2-4 weeks?
I wish I could answer that. There’s been so many different numbers, I think the main thing is I have to get healthy before I can play again. It’s just a matter of time for me to get healthy.
How would it feel to throw a ball right now?
I’m sure it would be pretty painful, but I think if I had to I could muster it up and throw it pretty good.
What are you doing now as a leader?
I’m just out there at practice every day chirping at guys, just making sure they’re out there still having fun and still working hard.
Lee Corso said the Sooners should sit him until Baylor and focus on winning the Big 12. Kirk Herbstreit said he would make sure he was healthy, but try to have him back by the Miami game, knowing that Oklahoma has more than conference title aspirations.
