Sooners getting healthy

Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

Alexander talks about stabbing: For the first time since being stabbed in the arm at a party after the opener, defensive end Frank Alexander spoke with the media on Tuesday. "The coaches were very understanding of the situation and came to see me in the hospital, which made me feel good to know I had their support and that they care about me," Alexander said. "They just told me to come back stronger. I've learned a lesson; my mother always tells me that nothing good happens after midnight, and I guess she was right." (The Oklahoman)

OU injury report: Bob Stoops said Tuesday that wide receiver Manuel Johnson was "getting closer" to returning to the lineup for Saturday's game against Nebraska. Johnson "caught some balls, did some drills yesterday, is supposed to do more today. So it should be just how comfortable he is at the end of the week and how much of the game plan, meaning in practice, he's able to execute. We'll just have to see by the end of the week." Tight end Brody Eldridge was full speed at practice on Monday and is expected to play, Stoops said. Offensive lineman Branndon Braxton, coming off an ankle injury against TCU, sustained a shoulder injury last week, said offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson. (Tulsa World)
