NORMAN — Dusty Dvoracek's return to the Oklahoma Football team has taken a detour.

Dvoracek, a 6-foot-4 senior defensive tackle from Lake Dallas, Texas, could miss four to five months after tearing his left bicep during Saturday's Red/White game.

Dvoracek underwent surgery to repair the tear Sunday morning.

"We expect that Dusty will make a full recovery and are confident that he will be ready at the beginning of the season," said Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops in a statement released through Oklahoma Sports Information Director Kenny Mossman late Sunday afternoon.

"There were no surprises during the surgery and the doctors found nothing unexpected," said Oklahoma trainer Scott Anderson.

Dvoracek, who was dismissed from the team two games into last season, was re-instated for another year of eligibility next season after receiving a medical hardship from the NCAA. He had been a dominant force on the defensive line this spring recording 10 tackles and seven sacks in OU's three scrimmages.
