Oklahoma Vs. Kansas State: Tony Jefferson Expected To Play For Sooners

Oklahoma safety Tony Jefferson is on track to play Saturday against No. 15 Kansas State, according to The Oklahoman's Jason Kersey.

Jefferson suffered a bruised ankle during the Sooners' 69-13 win over Florida A&M on Sept. 8. and was in a walking boot for most of the past two weeks. Jefferson recently returned to practice after coach Bob Stoops stated he'd have to see the safety in practice before making a determination on his playing status.

After taking every snap in practice on Tuesday, it appears Jefferson is ready to go.

Jefferson was the 2010 Big 12 co-Defensive Freshman of the Year and was named a 2010 Freshman All-American. In two games this season, Jefferson has 11 total tackles and one pass breakup.

The No. 6 Sooners will open Big 12 play against the Wildcats at 6:50 p.m. CT in Norman, OK, with coverage on FOX.
