BAYLOR FOOTBALL BREAKING NEWS: Griffin, Baker out for season

By Denton Ramsey, Big 12 Fans Baylor Correspondent

WACO, Texas — It’s sad but true; Robert Griffin, the Baylor Bears sophomore quarterback, and Mikail Baker, the BU senior kick returner, will both miss the rest of the season due to knee injuries sustained in Baylor’s 68-13 blowout victory over Northwestern State.

The news just recently broke on a story posted through the Baylor Bears Official Athletic Site on Sunday evening.

According to the report, an MRI exam conducted Sunday afternoon showed an isolated tear in Griffin’s anterior cruciate ligament (ACL); Baker, a defensive back as well as a special teams specialist, has an ACL tear as well as a tear to his medial and lateral meniscus.

Somehow, the Bears must now re-group and move on with what they’ve got.

Backup quarterback Blake Szymanski is currently listed as “day-to-day.”

The Bears return to action on Saturday, Oct. 3, at Floyd Casey Stadium against Kent State.
