Oklahoma senior cornerback Aaron Colvin, who missed last week's win over Iowa State with an apparent shoulder injury, is set to return to action this weekend at Kansas State, a source close to Colvin told The Oklahoman.

Colvin suffered the injury in the Sooners' 41-12 loss at Baylor earlier this month. He also missed Oklahoma's early season win over Tulsa at home with a different injury.

Colvin has recorded 42 tackles, one sack and one interception so far this season.


Oklahoma will roll with redshirt freshman Trevor Knight this weekend as its starting quarterback, with sophomore Kendal Thompson serving as his backup while junior Blake Bell recovers from last week's concussion.

Senior center and captain Gabe Ikard said earlier this week he's fine with any of the three quarterbacks playing, because, he said, it doesn't change much for the rest of the offense.

“The offense is the same no matter which quarterback is in there,” Ikard said. “Those three guys are very capable and very talented. We aren't going to change anything because if Blake can't play, he can't play. We have two guys backing him up that are really, really good football players.”
