OU Football Notebook: Corey Wilson "making good progress”

Oklahoman Published: March 26, 2009

/> Saturday, the same thing may happen to OU’s second scheduled scrimmage, as inclement weather is expected to hit the state this weekend.

"If it’s too bad to be outside, we may have to go indoors and simulate a scrimmage again,” said Stoops, whose team practiced Wednesday for the first time since returning from spring break. "We’ll play it by ear. We’ll go indoors if we have to, that’s not a big deal. Just not go full go. The walls are little bit too tight. We don’t want to take the chance of someone getting hurt. Getting a lot of the young guys snaps, that’s the main thing.”

Stoops said the young player that stood out during the first, scaled-back, simulated scrimmage was backup quarterback Landry Jones.

"I thought Landry before the break really started to come on,” Stoops said. "You could tell he’s getting more and more comfortable, which is good.”
