Oklahoma Vs. FSU: Travis Lewis A Go In Tallahassee

Injured Oklahoma Sooners linebacker Travis Lewis is suited up for OU's Saturday night game against the Florida St. SeminolesTravis Haney reports. Lewis broke part of his foot in August and was expected to be out until early October, but had hinted at the possibility of playing this week before appearing to downplay his chances. In private, he'd apparently been maintaining he'd play.

As Haney notes, Sooners coach Bob Stoops never actually ruled out the possibility of Lewis participating. There's a big question of how much of an impact he can make, considering he's not yet 100 percent, but even seeing Lewis in uniform is going to provide a big boost for Oklahoma in a critical road game.

As a junior, Lewis piled up 109 tackles and three interceptions, including six tackles and a pick against FSU.

Travis Lewis Injury Healing Ahead Of Schedule, But No-go Vs. FSU

Injured Oklahoma Sooners linebacker Travis Lewis was supposed to miss as many as eight weeks after hurting his foot late in the offseason, but it doesn't sound like he's going to miss anywhere near eight games. In fact, earlier Monday, Lewis was talking like he could return for Oklahoma's second game this weekend against the Florida St. Seminoles

Toe feels amazing . . Just finished jogging and feeling very very optimistic. I can walk and run, pain free without the toe hurting . . . All these equals GAME TIME! For everyone that's that's asking. . . Ill let y'all know by the end of the day if ill going to play this week

And then a couple hours later, Lewis had to share the bad news:

Won't be playing this week . . Still another week away. Sorry sooner fans

But it's really not that bad, since he's clearly optimistic he can return to the field more quickly than had been forecasted. While OU won't have him for a huge game against the Noles, Lewis' hopeful timetable puts him in line to make it back for conference play.
