Sooners' Ben Habern undergoes surgery

Oklahoma Sooners junior center Ben Habern had surgery on his right forearm Sunday and is expected to be out at least a month.

Habern, who's made 27 career starts as OU's center, broke his radius bone in the third quarter of a 38-28 win over Missouri on Saturday. After being taken to the locker room, he came out with his arm in a sling.

The Sooners are hoping Habern can return in a month as a guard. But it could be at least two months before he'll be able to snap a ball.

With Habern out, left guard Gabe Ikard will slide over to center. Ikard played center after Habern exited Saturday's game.
