NORMAN — Sam Bradford underwent successful surgery on his throwing shoulder on Wednesday in Birmingham, Ala.

The 35-minute procedure was finished at 10:45 this morning, and Bradford, though still experiencing soreness, was resting comfortably.

It all looked great in the end and everyone seems to feel very good about it, said Kent Bradford, Sam Bradford's father, in a release.

Kent Bradford was able to watch some of the surgery, performed by Dr. James Andrews, and said the reigning Heisman winner would go through a limited exercise session on Wednesday before returning home in the next 24 to 48 hours.
