OU's Cade Davis has facial fracture

NORMAN, Okla. -- Guard Cade Davis will be held out of contact drills during practice but should not miss any games for Oklahoma after he suffered a facial fracture.

Sooners basketball coach Jeff Capel said Wednesday that Davis would not need surgery and has been cleared for conditioning and shooting drills. He was injured during a team workout last Friday.

Capel says it will take four to six weeks for Davis to make a full recovery, and he may wear a protective mask after he is cleared to play. Davis is a team captain and averaged 9.9 points last season, the most of any player returning to the Sooners.

Oklahoma opens the regular season at home Nov. 12 against Coppin State.
