NORMAN, Okla. – After spending several weeks on the bench following a spine and neck injury, it seems OU quarterback Trevor Knight may get back on the field for one final game this season.

According to officials at the University of Oklahoma, Knight has been cleared by medical personnel to play and practice for the bowl game.

Knight missed the last three games after suffering an injury during the Sooners’ loss to Baylor on Nov. 8.

Freshman Cody Thomas started in Knight’s place and helped OU finish 2-1 over the teams’ final three regular season games.

This season, Knight has thrown for 2,197 yards, 14 touchdowns, 9 interceptions and completed 58 percent of his passes.

OU will take on Clemson in the Russell Athletic Bowl on Dec. 29 at 4:30 p.m.
