STOOPS: KASITATI PRACTICING

Redshirt freshman offensive lineman Nila Kasitati has returned to the practice field and is doing well following his heart surgery a couple weeks ago, Stoops said.

Kasitati's surgery was for a heart condition he's dealt with for a long time; the condition was not life threatening.

Stoops said Kasitati could end up as the Sooners' backup center to junior Gabe Ikard.
