Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said Monday that quarterback Sam Bradford has a Grade 2 or Grade 3 sprain of the AC joint in his right, throwing shoulder.



Stoops said that Bradford’s recovery will continue to be monitored and it could be a “week or two” before there is a total understanding of a timetable for the junior’s return.

“A lot of it depends on how he heals and how he’s feeling,” Stoops said. “It will be a while.”

ESPN’s Joe Schad reported Sunday evening that two people close to the situation said that Bradford had already begun physical rehabilitation and was hoping to be able to recover without surgery.

Bradford, last year’s Heisman Trophy winner, sprained the AC joint in his throwing shoulder when he was driven to the turf in the first half of the third-ranked Sooners’ 14-13 upset loss to No. 20 BYU on Saturday. Bradford underwent an MRI on Sunday.

Only four days before he was hurt, Bradford described how he’d taken out an insurance policy after he decided to pass up the chance to be a first-round pick in this year’s NFL draft and instead pursue a national championship at Oklahoma.

Meanwhile, Stoops said he would have more information later this week on the prognosis of second-team All-America tight end Jermaine Gresham, who has cartilage damage in his right knee and didn’t play against BYU.
