The unbeaten and fifth-ranked Baylor Bears got bad news on Tuesday.
Wide receiver Tevin Reese will have to undergo wrist surgery and will miss the remainder of the season, Baylor head coach Art Briles announced.
Reese dislocated his right wrist after coming down on it awkwardly in Baylor’s 41-12 victory over the Oklahoma Sooners Thursday night.
“You can’t replace a guy like Tevin Reese, on or off the field. Leadership-wise, experience-wise, he was more than just a great wideout, that’s for sure,” Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty told the Associated Press. “We’ve been fortunate enough not to have the injury bug hit us too hard, we kind of had a couple of injuries this past week, but we’ll be ready.”
Reese was having an excellent season. He had 33 receptions for 824 yards and eight touchdowns, averaging an astounding 25.0 yards per catch.
Since Reese is a senior, this unfortunately ends his college career. In four years at Baylor, Reese has 182 catches for 3,059 yards and 24 touchdowns.
Baylor will get back to work Saturday when they host the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Kickoff is at 7:00 pm EST and the game is on Fox.
