Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph suits up for Monday's practice

Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph was out of the protective boot and suited up for Monday's practice.

Oklahoma State sophomore quarterback Mason Rudolph was actually out of the boot and was suited up for practice on Monday afternoon with two cleats on and moving around quite normally to the view of teammates and those at practice.

Head coach Mike Gundy confirmed that Rudolph was ahead of schedule but fingers are still crossed that all goes smoothly in his rehab and healing from a procedure performed on the Monday after Bedlam to correct a situation described as a broken bone in his foot.

Rudolph was overheard in practice saying it did not hurt at all to walk on the foot. He was able to move around and throw the ball, but he was not involved in drills or any kind of team work. Besides throwing and working with the medical staff and the strength and conditioning staff, Rudolph was an observer.

Gundy has said that the plan was for Rudolph to ease in and begin participating more fully in practice on Dec. 21, 22 and 23 in Stillwater. Then Rudolph would be ready to fully practice in the preparations in New Orleans when the team arrives and begins practice on Saturday, Dec. 26.

Oklahoma State is slated to use Tulane University as their practice site for the Sugar Bowl.
