Tony Pierson ‘fine’ as Jayhawks prep for Baylor

The plan going into last week’s second and final bye week of the 2014 season was for the Kansas University football team to get healthy.

At least one Jayhawk made good on that goal.

KU coach Clint Bowen said on Monday’s Big 12 coaches teleconference that running back/wide receiver Tony Pierson was back in the mix after recovering from an injury that knocked him out of the Jayhawks’ loss to Texas Tech after just two plays.

“We gave him a couple days off,” Bowen said. “It was kind of an upper-neck injury, almost a sprain, and we had him checked out thoroughly and he’s fine. He’s back to practicing and shouldn’t be any issues.”
