NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma running back Allen Patrick may be limited in his playing time during Saturday's game against Texas Tech.

Patrick twisted an ankle in the final minute of last Saturday's win at Texas A&M and is limited in how much he can practice.

Offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson says Patrick is expected to be healthy enough to play _ but Wilson says he wonders how efficient he can be after limited practices.

Patrick replaced the injured Adrian Peterson and would be replaced by Jacob Gutierrez in the starting backfield.
