Will Quinn Ewers be healthy enough to play?
Former Southlake star and Longhorns quarterback Quinn Ewers is expected to start in the Alabama game for the first time since his collarbone injury.
Sarkisian told WFAA sister broadcaster KVUE that Ewers threw the ball in practice for weeks.
“[The quarterback room is] healthier than ever since the start of the season, so that’s a positive. We’ll see how the week goes,” said Sarkisian.
Will Dillon Gabriel be healthy enough to play?
Sooners quarterback Dillon Gabriel was kicked out of the TCU game and put on record with a concussion. ESPN’s Pete Thamel has reported this week that Gabriel hasn’t practiced, and OU has given practice snaps to three of their backup quarterbacks: Pitt transfer Davis Beville, East Texas native General Booty and Flower Mound alum Nick Evers.
Thamel reported Beville would be the expected quarterback, but Sooner fans will have to wait and see if Gabriel is available on game day.
