Austin, Texas – Sources told ESPN Thursday that Texan quarterback Quinn Ewers, who missed last month with a major shoulder injury, will return to the field against rival Oklahoma on Saturday.

He is expected to start against the Sooners in a Red River rivalry in Dallas.

Ewers has been dressing for the Texans games since the injury, but this is the first game he’s healthy enough to play. Sources told ESPN that Ewers was fully involved in practice throughout the week without restrictions.

His return comes on the heels of an expected initial schedule of four to six weeks after he suffered a major SC sprain – where the sternum meets the collarbone – against Alabama on September 10.

Ewers’ return provides another fearsome offensive weapon for Texas against Oklahoma’s faltering defense. He will play alongside Texans’ Bigan Robinson – the NFL’s best player in the position – and second-team student Xavier Worthy, who has gone on to emerge as one of the country’s most dangerous wide receivers.

The Ewers will face an Oklahoma defense that was eviscerated by the TCU last week and is 109th in full defense. The Sooners yielded 668 yards to the TCU, which scored 41 first-half points in a 55-24 blast. Oklahoma ranks #119 nationally in defensive rush.

Ewers will return to the field for the first time since he caught a glimpse of the arm talent that made him the No. 1 quarterback in the 2022 class and one of the best quarterbacks in Texas history.

In the first quarter of a Texans 20-19 loss, Ewers threw for 134 yards before hitting Alabama’s Dallas Turner and exiting the game. The 134 yards was the fourth against the Alabama team coached by Nick Saban. Ewers started and played well in Texas’ opener against Louisiana Monroe, throwing a pair of touchdowns in a drama-free Texas win.
