Oklahoma's Roy Finch Injures Ankle, Out 6-8 Weeks

The Oklahoman reports that tailback Roy Finch is in a cast and using crutches following a hairline fracture to his ankle sustained in practice:

"He's in a cast, walking around best he can on crutches," said coach Bob Stoops. "He has a good attitude. Roy will do well. He'll be back. And we expect him to play. They don't foresee any complications. There's no dislocation."

Stoops said that type of injury usually takes six to eight to eight weeks of recovery but added: "There's no displacement. It's just a little crack in the bone that should heal fine... They may X-ray it in five weeks and it looks good."

Finch turned heads during two-a-days with his ability to make plays in the open field and was vying for playing time behind starter DeMarco Murray and Mossis Madu.

Now, we're never happy to see an opposing player suffer. But seeing Bob Stoops try to spin bad news? Why yes... Yes, please. I'll have another.
