Keep an eye on Justin Blackmon

By David Ubben

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- We're only a few minutes from kickoff, but one quick note before we get started.

ESPN's pregame radio show noted that Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon missed some practice time this week with an infection in his inner thigh that was causing him some pain.

He's expected to be 100 percent, and I made a visit to the field a little earlier, and he looked OK. But keep an eye on him to see if any effects from the injury show up anywhere.
