Oklahoma WR Ceedee Lamb hints at return for Texas game

With a few words on Twitter, Oklahoma freshman wide receiver  Ceedee Lamb has buoyed hope he  could play Saturday against Texas.

Lamb’s inscrutable tweet seemed to hint that he might be ready to go against the Longhorns.

His confidence seemingly should hint that Lamb would consider himself that type of player. It’s hard to believe there would be many bigger games — at least in the regular season — than the Sooners’ annual bloodletting at the Cotton Bowl against the Longhorns.

Lamb suffered a shoulder injury while scoring Oklahoma’s second touchdown against Iowa State. It provided the Sooners an early 14-0 lead on a 15-yard touchdown grab.

No Lamb, no offensive production

But after he left, the Sooners’ offense ground to a halt. Quarterback Baker Mayfield’s deep passing game fell apart. His absence help contribute to the most stunning upset of the season.

Lamb has grabbed 17 receptions for 307 yards and a team-best four touchdowns.

If he can play, the Sooners’ chances of beating Texas should be much stronger.

If he’s on the bench, Oklahoma’s offensive production likely will suffer.
