Sam Bradford's status for Oklahoma's game against Miami is still a mystery.

Sooners coach Bob Stoops skipped his usual postpractice interview session yesterday, instead sending team spokesman Kenny Mossman to tell reporters there was no update on the quarterback's status.

The Heisman Trophy winner has missed No. 8 Oklahoma's last two games after spraining an AC joint in his right shoulder in the season-opening loss to BYU.

Stoops has said Oklahoma would spend the week watching Bradford's recovery and determine whether he can play Saturday against the 17th-ranked Hurricanes, perhaps as late as game day.

He has said Bradford has not had any setbacks in his recovery, but refused to give any details on what he has been able to do in practice.


* Florida coach Urban Meyer said quarterback Tim Tebow is improving after sustaining a concussion.

Meyer said on the weekly Southeastern Conference teleconference that Tebow "looked terrific" when he saw him late Tuesday night.

Tebow spent Saturday night in a Kentucky hospital after sustaining a concussion during a third-quarter sack against the Wildcats.

Florida is off until Oct. 10, when it visits LSU.
