Blake Bell's transition to tight end has undergone a setback.

The former Oklahoma quarterback suffered a knee sprain this week and will miss the rest of the Sooners' practice, a source confirmed to ESPN.com.

The injury, however, is not expected to require surgery, and Bell should be ready to rejoin the Sooners on the field in time for the preseason in August.

Bell started eight games at quarterback as a junior last season but eventually lost the job to freshman Trevor Knight, who led the Sooners to a win over Alabama in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. (ESPN)
