With backup tight end Trent Ratterree sidelined a week with a minor concussion, sophomore Austin Haywood has received more reps behind starter James Hanna.
"James has had a great camp," said tight ends coach Bruce Kittle. "I couldn't be any more pleased with him. He's always been a great route runner, and his blocking has improved. Austin is still getting all the mental stuff down for the different positions we have him at, but he's done a great job.
"If we need to we can go two tight ends at a time, or we can rotate. Either one of those guys can play consistently and help us win a championship."
NO NEW INJURIES
Stoops said the Sooners came out of Thursday's scrimmage with no significant injuries. Weakside linebacker Travis Lewis, sidelined up to eight weeks with a broken toe, is the only major injury from fall camp.
FALL CAMP NEARING END
The Sooners have one practice scheduled this morning, which will conclude two-a-days. The schedule calls for team meetings on Saturday and Sunday before players begin a regular routine when classes start on Monday.
"Drew Allen and Blake Bell are making strong progress and are coming on to where we're really starting to feel good about it." -- Bob Stoops on the backup quarterback competition.
