first_imgThe Oklahoman is saying Mayfield should be good to go for Bedlam on Saturday and OU’s 247 site took it one step further.Per our sources, Baker Mayfield WILL play Saturday against Oklahoma State. #Sooners— OUInsider (@OU247) November 23, 2015I do hope he plays for multiple reasons. 1. He’s fun to watch. 2. I don’t want an OSU win to be written off. 3. I don’t want Trevor Knight to turn into Sugar Bowl Trevor for one game which would inevitably happen.UPDATE: From Stoops himself.Bob Stoops says Baker Mayfield has passed all concussion tests past two years. “If he continues this way … then he is expected to play.”— Adam Rittenberg (@ESPNRittenberg) November 23, 2015 While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. Trevor Knight played the second half against TCU on Saturday because Baker Mayfield may (or may not) have suffered a concussion.The Oklahoman said he passed concussion tests during the game as well as on Sunday even though OU chose it best to not play him.Despite Mayfield passing concussion tests he was given during the game and at halftime, OU coaches chose to play it safe and keep him off the field. These days, with head injuries and the long-term damage they can cause being at the forefront of everyone’s consciousness, it’s usually better to be safe than sorry.That’s a big boy decision at this point in the season with all systems (allegedly) go on the Baker.AdChoices广告Stoops has said in the past that he purposefully keeps a distance between himself and the concussion testing protocol to avoid any appearance that he is interfering, and he said as much again after Saturday’s game.“I’m not part of the whole testing situation and everything they do,” Stoops said. “I know our doctors are incredibly thorough and always err on the safe side.”last_img
