The Baylor Bears certainly can’t afford to lose any more of their depth going into the 2016 season and they got a bit of a scare when top wide receiver KD Cannon went down with an injury.
Luckily, it looks like he will be back at practice next week.
Baylor interim head coach Jim Grobe spoke with the Waco Tribune‘s John Werner and talked about how they weren’t rushing to get him back on the field. He does, however, expect him back with the team next week.
“KD could go right now, but there’s no reason for us to do that,” Grobe said on Friday. “The more time we give him the better he’s going to feel. He’s one of those guys you don’t have to find out if he can play.”
In his first two years with the Bears, Cannon has recorded 108 catches for just under 1,900 yards and 14 touchdowns. He is without a doubt the team’s top offensive player after he was a preseason All-Big 12 selection.
The Bears open the season on Sept. 3 against Northwestern State.
