Adrian Taylor Questionable for Season Opener

Taylor likely game-time decision in season-opener: Oklahoma defensive tackle Adrian Taylor said Monday that he likely won't know until Saturday whether he will play in the season-opening game against Utah State. Taylor, the Sooners' lone returning defensive tackle starter, suffered a dislocated ankle in the Sun Bowl victory over Stanford. He has been practicing the past month on a limited basis. "I would love to play this Saturday," Taylor said. "But it goes back to me being smart about my situation. "Everybody and their mom knows I want to help the team to the best of my ability. But it won't help the team if I'm not able to play because I get hurt this Saturday." Defensive line coach Jackie Shipp said if Taylor does not play, he will use a rotation of sophomores Casey Walker, Jamarkus McFarland and Stacy McGee, along with Flower Mound Marcus freshman Daniel Noble.
