No. 2 Baylor facing potential huge loss with QB Russell hurt

WACO, Texas (AP) - Playoff hopeful Baylor is facing a potentially huge loss after staying undefeated, with quarterback Seth Russell set to see a specialist for a fractured bone in his neck.

The extent of Russell's injury won't be known until after that visit early this week, but the second-ranked Bears (7-0) will almost certainly be without the top-rated FBS passer for at least some time when headed into their toughest stretch of the season.

After Russell got hurt in the Bears' win over Iowa State on Saturday, coach Art Briles said he was concerned "about his health and then football."

Briles later told ESPN's Brett McMurphy that Russell "would probably be out awhile."
