(Stillwater-AP) -- Oklahoma State is back on the practice field as the Cowboys prepare for the Cotton Bowl game against Ole Miss.

The time off since the end of the regular season has given several injured players time to heal.

Tailback Tatum Bell and cornerback Darrent Williams have returned to practice. Offensive tackle Corey Hilliard and defensive end Antonio are expected back soon.

Backup receiver Chay Nease is also back at practice and tailback Seymore Shaw may be ready in time for the bowl game.

OSU will be without three starters, linebacker Lawrence Pinson, center Ben Buie and safety Elbert Craig.
