Baylor redshirt senior QB Bryce Petty was diagnosed with two cracks in the transverse processes of his back and is considered day-to-day.
Petty wasn't his usual sharp self on Sunday night against SMU before getting yanked at halftime in a blowout, completing 13-of-23 throws for 161 yards (he also rushed for 21 yards and a touchdown). The star signal-caller missed open receivers downfield and was seen grimacing. "When you’re throwing and I can’t torque [it's frustrating]," Petty said. FOXSports' Bruce Feldman reported that Petty’s injury heals on its own, so Petty's availability will ultimately come down to how well he can tolerate the pain. It's possible the Bears could scale back on read options and deep drops in the next few weeks to protect their Heisman candidate; Baylor has one of the conference's best offensive lines. Petty says he'll play on Saturday against Northwestern State. The Bears get Buffalo on Friday, Sept. 12, and then are off until traveling to Iowa State on Sept. 27. It's one of the softest September schedules of any Big 5 squad. Sep 1 - 11:49 PM
