OU’s Tuesday morning interview session was minus one member. Sooner linebacker Travis Lewis woke up sick and didn’t make it over to the media headquarters.
A few of his teammates surmised the culprit: Monday night’s dinner at Fogo de Chao, a Brazilian steakhouse where Lewis apparently ate himself into a food coma.
“He went a little too far at Fogo de Chaos,” said defensive end Jeremy Beal. “I tried to warn him, but he didn’t listen.”
Defensive coordinator Brent Venables, however, predicted that Lewis would practice this afternoon: “He’s going to practice. If I have to choke him, he’s going to practice.”
