In the midst of a tight quarterback battle, sophomore quarterback Kendal Thompson left Thursday’s practice with what they’re calling a fractured foot. Thompson, who played at Southmoore High school, was battling for playing time along with junior Blake Bell and freshman Trevor Knight. It’s unclear when Thompson will return, but head coach Bob Stoops is optimistic that he’ll return early this season. With the season less than a month away, with the opener on August 31 against Louisiana-Monroe, the quarterback battle is now down to two and looks to be Bell’s. Thompson, who redshirted two seasons ago, was recognized as a three-star recruit by ESPN.com. In three years at Southmoore, Thompson, who only played three games his senior year due to injury, threw for 4,113 yards and rushed for another 839 while recording a total of 59 touchdowns. Thursday, August 1, was the first day of practice for the Sooners. He is the son of Charles and Kori Thompson and cousin of former Sooner Antonio Perkins. Charles played for the Sooners in the late ’80s and Perkins was an All-American in 2003. Perkins holds the record with three punt returns for touchdowns in a single game, back in 2003 and is tied for most in a career with eight. The 6-foot-1, native of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma had a strong spring game performance, throwing for 86 yards on 8-for-15 passing and a touchdown.
