                   === Sooners QB Thompson fractures foot ===
 
 Norman,  OK (Sports Network)  - Oklahoma redshirt sophomore quarterback Kendal
 Thompson suffered a fractured right foot during Thursday morning's practice.
 
 "We're  optimistic  that Kendal  will return  early in  the season," coach Bob
 Stoops  said.  "Kendal will undergo a  surgical procedure today. He has a very
 positive  outlook and is eager to rejoin his teammates on the field as soon as
 possible."
 
 The  son of  former Oklahoma quarterback Charles Thompson, Kendal did not play
 last season.
 
 The  starting  quarterback job is  now likely  between Blake Bell and redshirt
 freshman  Trevor Knight.  Bell played in 13 games last season and completed 9-
 of-16 passes for 107 yards.
 
 The Sooners open the season on Aug. 31 against Louisiana-Monroe.
