Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon (groin) wasn't able to practice Tuesday.

Cannon suffered the injury in practice last week and aggravated it against Oklahoma State over the weekend. Luckily for Baylor, surgery has been ruled out. Of further luck, Iowa State is on deck. Cannon is considered day-to-day.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon exited Saturday's victory over Oklahoma State in the third quarter with a groin injury.

Per Baylor coach Jim Grobe, Cannon suffered the injury in practice during the week and then aggravated it against the Cowboys. He was in street clothes and seen limping at the end of the game. We'll update you on his status when more is known.

Baylor sophomore WR Ishmael Zamora caught eight passes for 175 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 35-24 win over Oklahoma State.

Zamora missed the first three games of the season while serving out a suspension. You wouldn't know it from watching Saturday's game. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder caught both of his touchdowns in the second quarter, finishing out the game with a stellar 21.8 yards per reception. Playing in a fantasy-friendly offensive system, Zamora is a prime waiver-wire option.

Baylor redshirt senior QB Seth Russell completed 18-of-28 passes for 387 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 35-24 win over Oklahoma State.

Baylor has played a typically cushy early schedule, but things will start ramping up for the Bears now that they have hit conference play. As has been the case several times this season, their offense was sluggish early. The game was knotted at 7-all after one quarter, at which point, Russell and friends started to do their thing. He threw a pair of touchdown passes to Ishmael Zamora in the second quarter and hit Chris Platt for a pair after the halftime break. Through four games, Russell has racked up 1,148 passing yards with a 13/4 TD/INT ratio. He should be able to shred Iowa State next weekend.

Baylor HC Jim Grobe confirmed that the three-game suspension of sophomore WR Ishmael Zamora is over.

"We’ll see if he has a good week of practice," Grobe said. "We haven’t really been able to work with him a lot because he wasn’t going to play. He’s practiced with us but he has actually spent more time on our scout team than he has with our regular offense, so we’ll try to work him back in the mix and see where he fits." Zamora was told to take a seat for the first three games for abusing his dog. "He’s been bombarded by a lot of things," QB Seth Russell said. "I feel for the guy. He’s shown me some things people have said to him. It’s mind blowing. For the most part he’s been really, really positive. He’s over there (on the scout team) making catches that are five feet beyond anyone else. He’s not someone who’s going to sit on the sideline and pout." Baylor gets Oklahoma State this weekend.

Baylor redshirt freshman RB JaMycal Hasty rushed for 105 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in Friday's 38-10 win over Rice.

Hasty led the Bears in both carries and yardage. He showed off an impressive blend of speed and power in averaging a meaty 7.5 YPC. Friday's fine performance continued what has been an equally fine start to the 2016 campaign. He entered his date with Rice having rushed for 132 yards on 14 carries (9.4 YPC) over the first two games of the season. Rivals ranked him as the No. 213 overall prospect for the 2015 cycle. While both Shock Linwood (13 carries on Friday) and Terence Williams (12 carries on Friday) in the fold, Hasty won't run away with a workhorse load, but he has capitalized on his opportunities and makes for an intriguing waiver wire flier in deeper leagues.

Baylor redshirt senior QB Seth Russell completed 22-of-38 passes for 337 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Friday's 38-10 win over Rice.

This was Russell's first 300-yard passing game of the young season. While Baylor's offense hasn't been quite as mind-melting as it was early in the 2015 campaign -- they stomped Rice 70-17 last season -- Russell continues to be a touchdown machine. In three games, he has tossed nine touchdowns against three interceptions.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon was a destroyer of worlds in Friday's 38-10 win over Rice, catching nine passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns.

As was the case last week against SMU, Baylor's offense was slow to rev up on Friday. Once it got going, though, K.D. Cannon put on a show. He hauled in a seven-yard touchdown in the right corner of the end zone with 7:27 remaining in the first half and would later polish off his immaculate evening with a 28-yard touchdown catch with a little over five minutes gone in the fourth quarter. The stud wideout has been a fantasy gem with his 24 catches for 352 yards and four touchdowns through three games played.
Sep 16 - 11:30 PM

Baylor redshirt freshman WR Pooh Stricklin will miss Friday's game against Rice due to a shoulder injury.

There is no current timetable for Stricklin's return. In contests against Northwestern State and SMU over the first two weeks of the season, the 6-foot-1, 185-pounder caught three passes for 43 yards. He ranked as ESPN 300's No. 257 prospect for the 2015 cycle.
Sep 15 - 5:31 PM

Baylor senior CB Travon Blanchard announced he has been cleared to re-join the team.

Blanchard suffered a meniscus injury on August 24, and the prognosis suggested he would miss multiple games. Baylor is 2-0 and likely will find themselves in the top 20 shortly. Blanchard is an important member of the defense and will likely serve as the school's starter in nickel situations.
Sep 12 - 10:52 AM

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon had 10 catches for 93 yards and a touchdown in a 40-13 victory over SMU on Saturday.

While Baylor's offense sputtered to a surprising degree today, they still gained over 500 yards, so we won't nitpick too much. The 10 catches were a single-game career-high for Cannon. Next up, the 2-0 Bears play their second Friday night game of the young year. It's their first road trip, another cushy matchup against Rice.
Sep 10 - 8:06 PM

Baylor senior S Orion Stewart intercepted two passes in a 40-13 victory over SMU on Saturday.

The veteran took advantage of SMU redshirt freshman quarterback Ben Hicks' first career start. Stewart's first pick of Hicks was in the end zone, stopping a promising drive, and his second was returned 33 yards to the house. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder is an intriguing size/speed NFL prospect.
Sep 10 - 7:54 PM

Baylor redshirt senior QB Seth Russell threw for 261 yards and a pair of touchdowns to push the Bears past SMU 40-13 on Saturday.

Russell ran for another score, but make no mistake -- he wasn't sharp. The veteran finished 26-of-47 with two interceptions. Baylor led only 6-6 at halftime before pulling away.
Sep 10 - 7:50 PM

Baylor coach Jim Grobe announced that redshirt junior RB Johnny Jefferson will take "some time away from school" and miss the 2016 season.

"Johnny, while still a member of this team, in addition to healing recent injuries is taking some time away from school to deal with some personal issues and hopefully will rejoin the program for spring semester," Grobe said in a statement. Jefferson ran for 1,000 yards last year. He burst onto the scene with 299 yards and three touchdowns in the Russell Athletic Bowl victory over North Carolina. Shock Linwood will now be backed up by Terence Williams (72 yards and 2 TDs on 11 carries) and JaMycal Hasty (68 yards on 7 carries).
Sep 9 - 9:44 PM

Former Baylor HC Art Briles told ESPN's Tom Rinaldi, "I understand I made some mistakes."

"There was some bad things that went on under my watch [in terms of sexual assault cases by football players]. I was the captain of this ship. The captain of the ship goes down with it," Briles said. Baylor announced their intent to terminate him near the end of May. In early August, Briles told reporters that he would like to coach next season and that his search will begin in earnest come November and December.
