Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said Monday he'll wait and see how quarterback Sam Bradford progresses this week before deciding if he'll play against Baylor.

Stoops said the Heisman Trophy winner won't play until he's "fully capable."

"We'll see," Stoops said during Monday's teleconference. "It's too early. I'm not getting into how close or far [he was to playing Saturday against Miami]. The bottom line is he wasn't where he needed to be."

Stoops later said Bradford practiced again with the Sooners on Monday, but he doesn't plan to make a decision on whether the quarterback will play until Thursday.

Stoops was asked several times about Bradford's availability and wouldn't budge.

"Everyone wants me to give them an answer I can't give," Stoops said. "Until you can see a guy progress, how do you know? Until you get out and work it, you don't have any idea."

Stoops did talk about what he wants to see out of Bradford before feeling like the quarterback is ready.

"It's making all the throws, making them comfortably, being able to execute the offense," Stoops said. "For him to be able to do them in a precise way and a way that he feels comfortable and he's not aggravating it."
