Sooners receiver Ryan Broyles bulking up

Noble said the most frustrating part of the injury was the lack of a timetable.

“With a knee injury, the trainers tell you in six months you'll be here, in eight months you'll be here. With concussions you don't really know,” said Noble, who eventually saw an Oklahoma City neurologist. “I was talking to the trainers to see where I was going, and they couldn't really give me a definite timeline. They were just kind of, ‘You'll get better when you're better.’”

Noble ultimately got better. He’s had a great winter, according to coach Bob Stoops. Now, he’s trying to work his way back into the rotation at defensive tackle, where the Sooners could have used him last season.

“Through all the winter, I've been feeling great,” Noble said. “I had great workouts. I got back to feeling like I should feel, back ready to play football. It's been a relief, definitely.”
