The Baylor Bears suffered a key loss today. Quarterback Seth Russell was injured earlier today against the Iowa State Cyclones late in the fourth quarter.

It has just been revealed that he suffered a fractured bone in his neck. He’s timetable on a return is unknown at the moment and will not be known until he visits a specialist this coming week.

“We’re going to evaluate Seth in the next few days,” head coach Art Briles said after the game. “If he’s cleared, he’ll play, because he’s a tough hombre now.”

If he can’t go, then freshman Jarrett Stidham will get the call. However, the Bears are in a bye week, before returning to face the Kansas Jayhawks on Nov. 5th.

Stidham threw a 12-yard touchdown pass on his lone completion of the game. Baylor defeated the Cyclones, 45-27, in the game.
