#2 Baylor Bears QB Seth Russell led his team to a 45-27 victory over the Iowa State Cyclones on Saturday, but the win could come with a significant cost.
Russell suffered what was first diagnosed by doctors as a strained neck and later revealed by Baylor's staff to be a fractured bone in his neck. Russell is slated to visit a specialist next week, and his playing status is unknown at this time.
Baylor heads into a bye next week.
Russell threw for just 197 yards and two touchdowns against Iowa State, but that's an outlier in what has been a fantastic, Heisman-worthy season for the Baylor QB. He's already thrown for 2,104 yards and 29 touchdowns this year, with only six interceptions to his credit.
If Russell can't go in November 5th's road game at Kansas State, freshman quarterback Jarrett Stidham will serve as his replacement.Back to the Baylor Bears Newsfeed
