STILLWATER — Oklahoma State faces Mississippi in the 2010 Cotton Bowl on Jan. 2 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. And OSU fans can expect to see something they haven’t seen since mid-November.
A healthy Zac Robinson.
The senior quarterback has fully participated in OSU’s first four practices in preparation for the Cotton Bowl. And while Robinson is not 100 percent healthy yet, he is expected to start his final game in a Cowboys uniform.
"We aren’t limiting his participation (during practice),” OSU coach Mike Gundy said during the Cowboys’ media luncheon on Tuesday. "He’s doing fine now, he’s been practicing every day. Four or five days from now, I think he’ll be full speed.”
Robinson is recovering from shoulder and ankle injuries suffered in November. The Pokes’ third-year starter at quarterback is overcoming a shoulder injury caused by a violent hit from Texas Tech cornerback Jamar Wall in OSU’s 24-17 win on Nov. 14. The bruised shoulder forced him to miss Senior Night against Colorado on Nov. 19.
He entered Bedlam with that sore shoulder, then injured the ankle during the Cowboys’ first offensive series against the Sooners but didn’t mention the injury to anyone.
