NCAA Football: Bradford Injured

By Matt Curry, WSOE Sports

It was late in the second quarter of Oklahoma’s first game of the season, and the Sooners were looking strong as they were marching down the field looking to take the lead. This swagger lasted only one play longer as QB Sam Bradford took a huge hit and landed on his shoulder in agonizing pain. He sprained his AC joint in his throwing arm and will miss at least 2-4 weeks. This not only takes a huge toll on the Oklahoma offence, but it takes out one of the leading candidates in the Heisman race.

With Bradford out for the next few games, it ruins his chances at repeating as Heisman winner. Also with the loss to BYU, the Sooners must win out to get to the BCS Championship game, and the chances of them winning the next four games without Bradford in a strong Big 12 Conference is quite low.  Hopefully Bradford will be back in time for the big game against the Texas Longhorns in week five, otherwise the game will be quite one sided.

I look for this injury to be quite a factor in the next few weeks and hopefully for the Sooners, Bradford will return soon and lead them to a winning record.  Otherwise look for a disappointing season for an extremely talented team.
