NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said Wednesday that Sam Bradford, the nation's top-rated passer, would have to be re-evaluated before team doctors could determine if he would play in the Sooners' game Saturday against Oklahoma State.

"Everything with Sam is positive," Stoops said after practice. "The doctors will evaluate him today and tomorrow and we'll see."

Bradford sustained a concussion in the first quarter of Oklahoma's 34-27 loss at Texas Tech on Saturday, which knocked the Sooners out of the national title picture. He has thrown for 2,520 yards and 28 touchdowns with only six interceptions this season.

Backup Joey Halzle completed 21-of-41 passes for 291 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in relief of Bradford against Tech.

Stoops said the return of defensive end Auston English, the Big 12 sacks leader, was "doubtful" for Saturday. English has missed the past two games with a hairline fracture in his leg.

Oklahoma will be without leading rusher DeMarco Murray (knee), defensive end Alan Davis (concussion) and backup receiver Adron Tennell (knee).knee
