Baylor and Texas Tech spent the first 30 minutes of their game trading touchdowns, but in between those score Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin took a few blows as well. In particular, one forearm to the head as he slid that caused his helmet to bounce off the turf. Griffin had to leave the game for a play before coming back in and running for a touchdown on his first play back.
Well, there must be something more to the injury, because when the Baylor Bears came out for the second half, junior Nick Florence was under center and Griffin was standing on the sideline. While Baylor wouldn't go into details, it did say he's out for the rest of the game.
There has been no official word on Griffin's injury from the Baylor sideline, but given the blow to the head in the first half, you have to believe that Griffin may be suffering from a concussion.
Which, aside from being a huge blow to Griffin and Baylor, would also be a blow to Griffin's Heisman candidacy. He accounted for 168 total yards and 3 touchdowns in the first half.
When we hear anything further about Griffin's injury, we'll let you know.
