NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford has returned to practice after undergoing surgery on his left, nonthrowing hand earlier this month.
The Heisman Trophy winner tore ligaments in his left thumb during a win over Oklahoma State on Nov. 29. He played despite the injury as the Sooners routed Missouri in the Big 12 title game Dec. 6. He had surgery the next day.
Bradford said his current crimson cast is smaller than the one he wore during the Heisman ceremony, but that he doesn't know yet when the newer cast will be removed.
Oklahoma offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson says Bradford is taking shotgun snaps in practice but still isn't able to take snaps directly under center.
Bradford, voted AP Player of the Year on Monday, doesn't anticipate any problems during the BCS championship game on Jan. 8 against Florida.
