Baylor wide receiver Tevin Reese dislocates wrist in win over Oklahoma
Baylor should be all smiles after beating Oklahoma 41-12 on Thursday night. But the result didn’t come without a cost, as coach Art Briles revealed that receiver Tevin Reese dislocated his wrist and will likely be out at least until the team’s bowl game.
Reese has 33 catches for 824 yards and eight touchdowns on the season, and along with Antwan Goodley (44 catches, 974 yards, 10 touchdowns), has given quarterback Bryce Petty options to keep the Bears rolling through their schedule. Baylor remains in the national title picture, but it finishes the season against Texas Tech, at Oklahoma State, at TCU and against Texas. It could use as many healthy playmakers as possible for the stretch run.
Baylor running backs Lache Seastrunk and Glasco Martin both also left Thursday night’s game with injuries, but they likely could have returned had the game not been out of hand. Backup tailback Shock Linwood carried 23 times for 182 yards.
On Friday, Reese thanked the Baylor family, and it sounds like his year might be over:
Thanks Baylor Nation for the prayers nd the great 4 years! Unfortunately, it has to come to a end but I wouldn't ask for anythin else! #12-0—
