White optimistic about recovery

OU quarterback says he'll be back for Texas A&M

Oklahoma sophomore quarterback Jason White attended this afternoon's practice in street clothes and said in an interview after practice that his knee feels great.

White, who will begin rehab in the weight room on Wednesday or Thursday of this week, is still expected to miss this Saturday's game with Tulsa, but is confident that he will be ready for the Texas A&M game the following week.

"It feels great," said White of his knee and pointing out he was not wearing a brace. "I'm going to continue to rehab it in the weight room and on the bike the next few days."

"I'm just walking on it right now and it feels good. I think I will be able to play against Texas A&M."

Oklahoma Head Coach Bob Stoops still continues to label White's injury as a "sprain" and not a "tear". White said he plans on returning to practice next Monday.

Junior quarterback Nate Hybl looked confident taking most of the snaps as the first team quarterback. Redshirt freshman Hunter Wall took an increased number of snaps as Hybl's backup and true freshman Brent Rawls took a few snaps as well with the first team.

Redshirt freshman offensive lineman Wes Sims was also at practice in street clothes and his status for the Texas A&M game is still uncertain.

Sims is still noticeably limping while White seemed fine.
