OU's Griffin Recovering from Concussion

By  | 

Preseason All-America Blake Griffin's status is uncertain for No. 2 Oklahoma's game against Kansas on Monday night after he sustained a concussion in a loss to Texas.

Sooners coach Jeff Capel said Griffin would be held out of
practice Sunday, but he won't know until game day whether his star
player will be able to play against No. 15 Kansas on Monday night.

Griffin averages 22 points and an NCAA-best 13.8 rebounds and
leads the nation with 22 double-doubles this season. He was hurt
Saturday night when he caught an inadvertent shot to the face from
the open hand of Dexter Pittman, Texas' 300-pound center.

Griffin sat out the second half and appeared dazed at times as
he sat on the bench during the Sooners' 73-68 loss.
