Following the loss to Texas over the weekend, Baylor quarterback Seth Russell was groggy and nauseous on Sunday. He took a couple of shots to the head against the Longhorns, and is going through concussion protocols this week.
The good news is he felt much better on Monday, and according to the Associated Press, his CT scans came back clean. Both, coach Jim Grobe and Russell expect him to play against the TCU on Saturday.
Also, any questions about his neck following last week’s injury seem to be put to rest.
“I have a facemask that’s dented in from the first half from whatever the hit was,” Russell told the Austin American-Statesman. “If there were any questions as to how my neck is, it’s still healthy. The facemask gave a good answer. The front left is just collapsed in. I don’t remember what hit it was but it was one of them.”
Russell took one shot to the head that could have been considered targeting against the Longhorns, especially as it looked like Russell was giving himself up.

However, it wasn’t called, and Russell appeared to be okay. Although, in light of comments made yesterday by Texas defensive end Breckyn Hager, the shot on Russell looks a little more sinister.
Thankfully, it looks like Russell won’t miss any time, but it’s something to watch as Baylor prepares for the “Revivalry” on Saturday.
