WACO, TX – Unfortunate news broke today for the 6-0 Baylor Bears, as senior linebacker Clay Johnston will miss the remainder of the season, after suffering a knee injury in yesterday’s game against Texas Tech.
“The biggest thing is that Clay was going sideline to sideline making up for a lot of other guys mistakes,” Matt Rhule said. “I think it’ll take all of us, take everybody to be able to go out there we have a lot of good players. To me, it’s the experience and the wisdom and the all things that Clay is seeing that are hard to replace so we’ll just kind of count on everyone to do it.”
Johnston had a clutch interception in the 4th quarter, and after the play, he left the game and did not return. Johnston is one of the biggest playmakers on Baylor’s defense, leading the team with 35 solo tackles, and 58 total tackles.
