Cornerback Aaron Colvin returned to practice Monday after recent injuries.

Colvin missed last week's game after suffering a broken tooth and a possible concussion in the win over West Virginia.

Colvin dressed out and went through warm-ups but didn't play.

Safety Gabe Lynn did not practice Monday, though Sooners coach Bob Stoops said he would practice this week.

Lynn was hurt on a second-quarter interception against Tulsa and did not return.

“Gabe was X-rayed and he was negative,” Stoops said. “He just got kicked. And everyone else is OK.”


Stoops was asked if it was unusual for a freshman to be as physical as Keith Ford, who ran for 46 yards on seven carries against Tulsa.

“Well, we had another one that could do that,” Stoops said.

Adrian Peterson ran for more than 1,800 yards as a freshman in 2004.

Ford certainly won't come near that, but Stoops said Ford might be the Sooners' most physical runner since Peterson.

“Maybe, when you're just talking about physical,” Stoops said. “I'm not comparing him to Adrian, but he's a powerful guy — definitely.”


Oklahoma quarterback Blake Bell was named the Big 12's Offensive Player of the Week after leading the Sooners to a 51-20 win over Tulsa.

It was the second consecutive week that an OU player won a weekly award from the conference. Safety Gabe Lynn was the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week last week.
