Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford flew to Birmingham late Friday and was to meet Saturday morning with renowned sports surgeon James Andrews, according to a report by Christian Steckel of WAPT-TV in Jackson, Miss.
Bradford sprained the AC joint in his right throwing shoulder before halftime of the Sooners' 14-13 loss to Brigham Young on Sept. 5. The Heisman Trophy winner has sat out the last two games. Oklahoma has a bye this week.
"There is no talk of surgery that we know of on the record, this is further evaluation on the original injury," Steckel said. "He wants to return to play next week [against Miami] and he's been in consultation with Dr. Andrews from the beginning, but he's going to make an appearance in front of him on this so he can make a better evaluation."
Florida quarterback Tim Tebow and safety Major Wright have come down with flu-like symptoms. The team plays Saturday night at Kentucky, and the players flew to Lexington on a plane separate from the team, according to Kyle Maistri of the Florida Independent Alligator.
