In the third quarter of the Baylor-Oklahoma game in Norman, Bears QB Seth Russell scrambled out of the pocket and after being hit by Sooners linebacker Caleb Kelly, suffered a gruesome leg injury.

This injury comes almost exactly a year after undergoing season-ending neck surgery and Russell’s season and Baylor career is most likely over.
As he was getting help from trainers and being taken off the field, there was clearly a ton of respect from the Oklahoma players.
