The Baylor Bears received crushing news today, as quarterback Seth Russell will have to miss the rest of the season. The redshirt junior saw a specialist today and the doctor insisted that he have neck surgery.

As we previously reported, Russell was injured in Saturday’s contest against the Iowa State Cyclones when he suffered a fractured neck bone. With Russell now out of the picture, freshman Jarrett Stidham will have to lead the attack.

He’ll have to take the ball and pass it through the most difficult part of their season. This includes games against Oklahoma, TCU (Texas Christian University) and Texas.

For those doctors out there, Russell damaged his cervical vertebra and will be out for a total of six months.

Russell was a Heisman candidate before this injury.
