NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma running back Samaje Perine is expected to play Saturday against No. 25 Baylor after missing three games with a pulled muscle in his right leg.

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops made the announcement Monday. He said Perine will practice for the ninth-ranked Sooners, but in a limited capacity early in the week.

Perine ran for 214 yards and two touchdowns in a win over Texas, and was among the Big 12's top rushers before being injured next game against Kansas State. He has rushed for 3,537 yards in his career, seventh-most in school history.

Joe Mixon will be back Saturday for the Sooners, too. The Big 12's No. 2 rusher was suspended for last Thursday's win over Iowa State after having an issue with a parking attendant.
