NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma's Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Sam Bradford had surgery on his injured right shoulder Wednesday and the school called it a success.

In a release sent out by the school, Bradford's father said Dr. James Andrews informed him that the procedure went "just as we expected."

Kent Bradford said his son was experiencing some soreness but was otherwise resting comfortably in Alabama after a 35-minute surgery. The quarterback, who had sprained the AC joint in his shoulder, was expected to return to Oklahoma within the next day or two.

Bradford has said he plans to enter the NFL draft if his recovery goes as planned. That process is expected to take four to six months.
