Even with all of the junk swirling around Jon Gruden and the news on Cam Newton‘s eligibility, did you really think you’d make it through the day without at least one update on DeMarco Murray?

While there is still no concrete answer as to the Oklahoma running back’s availability for the Big 12 title game Saturday, Bob Stoops said Tuesday that the knee Murray injured this past weekend is getting better. ┬áThe OU head coach also said that part of the reason for his being vague on Murray’s status is he doesn’t want to place additional pressure on the player.

DeMarco (knee) has improved over the last couple days. We’ll just see. It’s a little early in the week,” Stoops said. “The positive part is he has felt much better each day. So we’ll see.

“For me to say anything else puts pressure on him, whether I’m expecting him to play or not. I want him to be comfortable and feel good about it.”

Stoops also addressed the injury situation of another starter, stating that starting safety Jonathan Nelson practiced yesterday and felt fine, three days after suffering a concussion.
