STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy says receiver Artrell Woods, a Bryan High product, has been cleared to take part in all football activities.
Woods suffered a serious back injury last July and doctors at first wondered if he'd even walk again.
Gundy says Woods has run a 4.6 in the 40-yard dash after running a 4.4 before the injury but the coach says he expects the former Viking star to regain at least some of his speed.
Gundy says he fully expects Woods to be ready to play in the season-opener against Washington State.
Woods missed the 2007 season after hurting his back lifting weights.
OSU trainer Rob Hunt said Woods suffered a "fracture dislocation" of vertebrae and an incomplete spinal cord injury.
Heading into that '07 campaign, Woods had been pressing for a starting receiver job after an outstanding spring.
