Could Zac Robinson return in time for Oklahoma State's final regular season game at Oklahoma on Saturday? It looks like he's got a chance.

Oklahoma State Mike Gundy said during Monday's Big 12 coaches teleconference that he expects the senior quarterback to be at practice today. Robinson, who injured his shoulder in the Texas Tech game, did not play against Colorado last week. The extent of the injury is not known, but Robinson wasn't able to practice enough to warrant playing against the Buffaloes.

"We expect him to practice today," Gundy said. "We didn’t feel like he was ready to play (last week). He had not practiced as much as we wanted him to. We didn’t feel like he was ready to play. It wasn't fair to put him on the field."

Alex Cate started the game in Robinson's absence, but he was relieved by Brandon Weeden, who played well off the bench. Weeden was 10-for-15 in the second half for 168 yards passing and two touchdowns. Gundy said before the Colorado game that Cate got 6o percent of the snaps with Weeden getting 40 percent.

With a win on Saturday, Oklahoma State could make a BCS bowl as an at-large team.
