So much for a repeat Heisman Trophy performance for Sam Bradford. Right before the half, Bradford got crushed by Coleby Clawson and he was driven down into the turf, shoulder first. The hit was very reminiscent of the Tom Brady/Albert Haynesworth play, but this seemed more direct. Check out the Sam Bradford BYU hit video to judge for yourself:
Just another reason to leave for the NFL and make the money when you can get it, you know? Based on the way Bradford cradled his arm close to his body throughout the second half, I’d guess it’s separated. He’s probably out at least half the season but maybe I’m just overstating things. One thing to keep in mind is that this doesn’t mean Oklahoma should be counted out for the season. Remember when they kicked Rhett Bomar off the team right before the season? They still went 11-3 and made an appearance in the Fiesta Bowl. This should be interesting.
