Devante Bond Expected to Return Against Texas Tech

Oklahoma linebacker Devante Bond returned to practice this week and is expected to play against Texas Tech Saturday, defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said Tuesday.

Bond appeared in Oklahoma’s first four contests before sustaining a left ankle injury during OU’s Oct. 3 home date with West Virginia. Through those first four games, Bond totaled 18 tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble and a blocked field goal.

Bond has been good so far in his return, and both of his absences were game-time decisions, junior linebacker Dominique Alexander said.

Alexander said senior P.L. Lindley did a great job, however, filling in for Bond.

“When you have a great player like Devante, of course, you’re going to be missing something,” Alexander said. “There’s just so much he can bring to the table, the way he drops in the flats, the way he can come off the edge and do his job in the run game. But I feel like P.L. did a great job for him, and we’re happy to have (Devante) back this week.” (OUDaily.com)
