FSN college football studio analyst Joel Klatt, a former Colorado quarterback, said he "would be shocked” if OU quarterback Sam Bradford doesn’t play against Miami on Oct. 3. Klatt doesn’t have any inside information, but as a sophomore at Colorado, he suffered the same shoulder injury — an AC joint sprain — that sidelined Bradford in the BYU game. In his third week after being injured, Klatt came off the bench wearing oversized shoulder pads to play against Baylor and the following week threw for a career-high 419 yards against Kansas. "I had Toradol shots given to me in my shoulder to try to take away the pain,” Klatt said. "They (doctors) told me, ‘It’s secure. It’s just painful for you. If you can handle the pain, you can play.’ ” Klatt said the pain subsided as the season progressed. "I wasn’t able to sleep on my right shoulder for the entire football season. The day that my shoulder felt the best was on Saturday because of the shots that they would give me. Sunday and Monday were awful. I could hardly throw the football on Monday afternoons after playing on Saturday.” The Miami game would be four weeks after Bradford suffered the shoulder injury, which Klatt said might be a blessing in disguise for the Sooners. He said the rest of the offense will need to pick it up a notch to compensate for his loss. "As they improve, all of a sudden you throw Sam Bradford back into the mix and you’re just a better all-around team,” he said. Klatt, 31, who co-hosts a Denver sports talk show, will be part of FSN’s "Big 12 Kickoff Show” at 2 p.m. prior to the network’s Tulsa-OU telecast at 2:30 p.m (announcers Joel Meyers, Dave Lapham and Jim Knox). He expects the Sooners, led by a solid defense, will prevail without Bradford. "I just think Tulsa, athletically and manpower-wise, is going to be up against it trying to move the football,” he said.
