Injury Report: Nov. 15

NORMAN, Okla. — As Sooner Nation would hope for, there's not much fresh news in the way of injuries coming off the bye week.

Obviously, that is a positive considering no one has been injured in practice outside of a game week.

Slot receiver Ryan Broyles and running back Dominique Whaley, as everyone knows, are out for the season with their torn anterior cruciate ligaments (ACLs), but the rest appears to be the same.

"The injury situation is let's see, Tom Wort should practice today, but we'll see," said head coach Bob Stoops. "[He] was running and doing drills yesterday, but did not go through our team work but looked closer to being ready to play. And then, of course, Ryan and Dominique, two big offensive presences, we'll miss those guys. But I believe everybody else is set to go."

One piece of good news is the continued healing of center Ben Habern, who claims his wrist is essentially 100 percent now.

"I mean, the doctors were really impressed with how fast it's healed," Habern said. "Last time I took an X-ray, they said it was basically healed, but I think to fully completely heal it takes 10-12 weeks."

The off week was very beneficial to get another few days closer to that time frame.

"It was good to be able to rest it and got a lot of rehab through the off week and, you know, just each day it's going to keep getting better and better," Habern said. "And basically our trainers have told me the more I used it, the healthier it'll get. That's pertaining to my wrist."

For right now, Habern and Gabe Ikard are splitting snaps at center, with a starter there yet to be determined.

And that's the latest on the injury front.

As always, stay tuned for the latest updates.
