NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma defensive tackle DeMarcus Granger has opted to rehabilitate his injured left foot.

Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops said Thursday that Granger chose the rehab option over potentially season-ending surgery.

Stoops says Granger will miss three to four weeks, after which the player's status will be reassessed.

Granger suffered the injury late in the first half of the Sooners' 55-14 win over Washington on Saturday.

The junior from Dallas has recorded six tackles and a fumble recovery this season.
