Baylor wide receiver R.J. Sneed out for year with leg injury

Baylor freshman wide receiver R.J. Sneed will miss the rest of the 2017 season after suffering a broken leg during a 38-36 loss to No. 23 West Virginia, according to head coach Matt Rhule.

Sneed suffered the injury early in the third quarter a punt return. He appeared to get tangled up with his own teammate, and the punt bounced off his head. Trainers helped carry Sneed off the field.

Rated a high-end 3-star recruit, Sneed picked Baylor over offers from a slew of the nation’s best programs. The freshman had 5 catches for 53 yards in five appearances this season. He added a career-long 19-yard catch against the Mountaineers in the first half.

It’s another blow to a Baylor team that has dealt with countless injuries this season. The Bears lost veteran wide receiver Chris Platt earlier this season to a torn ACL.
