RB Toston looks healthy
After offseason surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament, Keith Toston's name hasn't been one of the first to be discussed at running back for Oklahoma State.

That doesn't mean he isn't ready to contribute.

"People don't talk about him a whole lot coming off the ACL surgery,” OSU quarterback Zac Robinson said. "He has looked great this summer. He looks like the same old Keith, running 100 percent on that knee.”

Toston will spend the preseason battling sophomore Kendall Hunter and junior-college transfer Beau Johnson for carries in the Cowboy backfield.

•Lewis no longer with team: Junior defensive lineman Jonathan Lewis has left the team, according to head coach Mike Gundy.

"I'd hate to speak for him,” the coach said. "But as you know, this is not an easy game. There has to be a total commitment in all areas, and he had decided that maybe his heart wasn't in that particular part of it. And when it's not in it, it's too hard.”

Lewis, a 285-pound Amarillo, Texas, native, played in nine games as a sophomore and three as a true freshman. He recorded six total tackles for his career.

•This week's schedule: Oklahoma State fans can watch approximately the first hour of each of the first seven practices of camp, which begins Thursday on the practice fields east of Gallagher-Iba Arena.

This week, practices begin at 4:45 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Sunday. Saturday's practice begins at 8:15 a.m., and fans will be permitted to watch the entire 2-hour, 15-minute workout. Fan Appreciation Day activities begin at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.
