Oklahoma QB Mayfield works toward playing vs Oklahoma St

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will do some light work at practice Monday, and hopes to play in Saturday's pivotal game against Oklahoma State after he was sidelined following a blow to the head in a win over TCU.

Coach Bob Stoops says Monday that the Heisman hopeful checked out well the past two days, and plans called for him to do light work at practice.

Mayfield was shaken up by a helmet-to-helmet hit from TCU linebacker Ty Summers, who was ejected for targeting. The hit came early in the first half. Mayfield missed the second half of Saturday's win.

Mayfield has completed 69 percent of his passes, with 32 touchdowns and five interceptions. He also has 343 yards rushing and six TDs.

The fifth-ranked Sooners (10-1, 7-1 Big 12) can clinch the Big 12 conference title with a victory over No. 9 Oklahoma State (10-1, 7-1).
