Joe Mixon Expected to Play Against Baylor

Sooners running back Joe Mixon is expected to play next Saturday against Baylor.

“From what we have at this point, yes,” Sooners coach Bob Stoops said.

Mixon’s absence left the Sooners with only one available scholarship tailback—freshman Abdul Adams.

Even Adams was banged up, though, and had just eight carries as Flowers moved to tailback for large stretches.

Joe Mixon Suspended For Iowa State Game

University of Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon has been suspended for Thursday night's game at Iowa State for violating team rules.

"OU sets very high standards and they must be met by all of our student-athletes," said OU Head Coach Bob Stoops.

Mixon said, "I regret that I did not respond appropriately to parking attendants and understand and accept the consequences."

UPDATED: From The Oklahoman
At 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Mixon was given a parking citation on the north oval, said his attorney, Blake Johnson.

“He was frustrated, as most of us are when we get a ticket,” Johnson said. “He tore the ticket up in front of the parking attendant, and threw it on the ground.”

Later that afternoon, at 1:30 p.m., Johnson said the parking attendant filed a complaint with OUPD.

“We are very confident that Joe did nothing criminal,” Johnson said.

Bob Stoops Can't Keep Count of Injuries, Suspensions

Oklahoma was as short-handed as it has been all season for Saturday’s game against Kansas. The latest blow was freshman defensive end Amani Bledsoe. The backup was “suspended indefinitely” before Saturday’s 56-3 victory.

The Lawrence Journal Record, Bledsoe's hometown paper, reported Saturday night that he tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug. Bledsoe is appealing the test result.

Running Back Joe Mixon Reinstated to Team

Freshman running back Joe Mixon, who was suspended from the Oklahoma football program for the 2014 season after he was charged with a misdemeanor for punching a female student, has rejoined the team, Sooners running backs coach Cale Gundy told reporters Wednesday.

"He made a split-second and wrong decision, and he knows that," Gundy said during Oklahoma's signing day news conference. "He is a super, super kid. And I use the term 'kid' because he still is like a kid. He's still very young."

Mixon, who was the gem of Oklahoma's 2014 signing class, entered an Alford plea in his misdemeanor assault case Oct. 30, and agreed to perform 100 hours of community service and undergo counseling. Surveillance video showed Mixon punching the student, who police said suffered several fractures to her face and had to be treated at Norman Regional Hospital.

Former Sooner Adrian Peterson Suspended Remainder of Season, Could Miss Games in 2016

The NFL has suspended former Oklahoma and current Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson without pay for the remainder of the season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, the league announced Tuesday.

The league said Peterson will not be considered for reinstatement until at least April 15.

Peterson may appeal the decision to league commissioner Roger Goodell within three business days. He will remain on the Exempt List and continue to be paid pending a decision.

The National Football League Players Association said it will appeal the decision and "demand that a neutral arbitrator oversee the appeal."

Bob Stoops Unhappy With Zack Sanchez's Show of Support for Suspended Teammate

In Saturday's game, cornerback Zack Sanchez wrote “Free Frank Shannon” on his headband and had “Free Baker” on his eye black. Of course, both statements are referring to players the Sooners don't have available to them this year. The school has suspended Shannon for the year, while Mayfield's absence is due to an NCAA ruling.

Bob Stoops said on the Big 12 teleconference he was unaware of that during the game, but addressed the issue during his press conference.

“They shouldn't be (making those statements); I don't like that,” Stoops said. “I stand by the university and what we've done and that will be addressed. Nothing team related is to be made public and that's the same on social media. I would regard that as social media. The team matters are to be with us, period.” (News9)

Frank Shannon Suspension Upheld by Oklahoma State Supreme Court

Oklahoma State Supreme Court ruled on Monday the year-long suspension of linebacker Frank Shannon can be enforced by University of Oklahoma, according to The Oklahoman and court documents.

The court ruled that Cleveland County District Judge Tracy Schumacher should not have issued a stay allowing Shannon to remain in school and part of Oklahoma's football team.

Shannon, Oklahoma's leading tackler in 2013, has not appeared in any games in 2014 despite the stay issued by District Judge Schumacher.

The state's highest court also decided to seal all documents related to Shannon's case.

Shannon was suspended in August by the University for violating the school's Title IX sexual misconduct policy.

Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn declined to file charges against Shannon related to case.

OU suspended Shannon on June 18 after a Title IX investigation into an alleged sexual assault. Shannon went to district court June 24 and received a stay, allowing him to remain enrolled as a student and to continue working out with the team.

Stoops: Chuka Ndulue Will Have to Earn His Way on the Field

Cornerback Cortez Johnson and defensive tackle Chuka Ndulue were listed as starters but missed the first game due to breaking team rules in the offseason. Now, they’ll have to earn their spot back.

Ndulue is in a similar situation after Jordan Phillips, Charles Tapper and Geneo Grissom started in OU’s three-man front and played well, earning praise from Stoops for being disruptive. Ndulue can play defensive end or defensive tackle, which could make his road back onto the field a bit easier.
