Patrick recovering from sprained ankle, may play in opener
NORMAN, Okla. -- Tailback Allen Patrick went through about half of Oklahoma's practice on Wednesday and may be able to start Saturday against North Texas.
Patrick missed more than two weeks of practice and had been wearing a protective boot on his right foot while recovering from a sprained ankle.
"He said he feels better than he did when he played on it last year," Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said. "Again, he's getting better and we're working him toward playing."
