No early return for Oklahoma LB Lewis

Coach Bob Stoops doesn’t expect leading tackler Travis Lewis to

be able to play this Saturday night for No. 1 Oklahoma against

fifth-ranked Florida State.

Lewis would have had to return weeks earlier than expected from

a broken left big toe to play against the Seminoles (2-0). He was

re-evaluated Monday, and Stoops said after practice that Lewis is

”trying to see how it feels and loosening the ankle up, so he’s a

long way from playing.”

Lewis has led the Sooners (1-0) in tackles the last three

seasons. He was injured in practice on Aug. 8 and expected to miss

eight weeks.
