Report: Blake Bell Taking Snaps at Quarterback

Oklahoma senior Blake Bell said after Thursday’s practice that he hasn’t taken a snap at quarterback since early January.

But multiple sources confirmed to The Oklahoman that Bell has been splitting some of his time this week in practice between his new position — tight end — and his old one.

Bell’s limited quarterback repetitions have only come against the second-team defense, and coaches have only been working him there as possible insurance in case something happens to starter Trevor Knight.

Earlier this week, coach Bob Stoops said redshirt freshman Cody Thomas would likely be Knight’s primary backup, but according to sources, Thomas has been injured, which is why Bell has split second-team reps this week with true freshman Justice Hansen. (The Oklahoman)
