"It's classified as a one on a scale of three," said Spano of the injury. "I will miss next week's game with Mineral Wells, but should be 50-50 to play the next week.
"It happened midway through the first quarter," Spano continued. "There was a guy on either side of me and the guy on my right turned me and I went down on the shoulder and he went down on top of me at the same time. I heard something pop."
The 6-3, 200-pound quarterback was one of the Cowboys earliest commitments in the Class of 2008 recruits and he is expected to be tied up late into December with the Class 4A playoffs in Texas. Stephenville is a favorite for the title and is 7-0 on the season.
Spano, who emphasized that nothing has changed and he is as firm on OSU as he has always been, will graduate at mid-term and is planning on enrolling at OSU in January and being part of the off season and spring football at OSU.
Statistically, Spano is also having a good season, really, as good as any quarterback in Texas. He has completed 83 of 122 passes (68 percent) for 1,196 yards and 11 touchdowns while throwing just four interceptions.
He said he now hopes to make his official visit to Stillwater for either the Texas game on Nov. 3 or the Kansas game on Nov. 10.
