Bradford reaggravated the injury when Longhorns cornerback Aaron Williams clobbered him on a blitz, forcing him to land on top of the shoulder similar to the way he did in the BYU game.
"It wasn't on purpose and it was unfortunate that he was hurt," Williams said. "It was a big play, but I would never wish for somebody to get hurt like that. I wish him the best of luck and I send all my blessings to him."
Heupel said Bradford had improved his arm strength and become bigger and stronger, particularly in his lower body, while trying to improve after winning the Heisman.
"Did he completely accomplish all those things? No, because they're all a work in progress," Heupel said. "But I think he certainly got better each and every day that he was here and really focused on a lot of the things he wanted to get better at and did that."
Heupel didn't want to speculate on what Bradford's plans entailed, including whether he would attempt to play again this season. Stoops has only ruled Bradford out for this Saturday's game at No. 24 Kansas.
"What's going to happen here a week from now or three weeks from now or four weeks from now, I don't know," Heupel said. "Those are things that I guess we'll find out as we go down the road."
