The Baylor football program keeps getting bad news.
If it isn’t coming in the form of being manhandled ever Saturday, it’s taking the shape of season-ending injuries to their biggest play-makers.
On Tuesday, Baylor head coach Matt Rhule said that dynamic wide receiver Chris Platt is likely going to miss the remainder of the season after suffering a knee injury.

Platt was forced to exit Baylor’s Saturday matchup against Baker Mayfield and the Oklahoma Sooners. He was off to a fast start against the Sooners, hauling in five receptions for 93-yards before being sidelined.
One of the few bright spots of an otherwise miserable 2017 campaign, Baylor will now have to reshuffle their depth chart and rely on unproven players to make up for Platt’s production.
Speaking to the the Dallas Morning News, coach Rhule fell short of wide-eyed optimism
“I don’t know if you can replace Chris’ big-play abilities,” Rhule told reporters
Baylor’s season continues this Saturday with a road game against Kansas State. They’ll desperately be seeking their first win of the season after an 0-4 start.
