WACO (AP) – Baylor running back JaMycal Hasty is expected to be out at least four weeks because of a sprained knee.
Coach Matt Rhule said Monday the sophomore will not need surgery. Hasty was hurt in the season-opening 48-45 loss to Liberty in which he ran 11 times for 56 yards and a touchdown.
Freshman John Lovett ran for 89 yards and two touchdowns in his Baylor debut. The Bears also have two other freshman running backs expected to play — Dru Dixon and Trestan Ebner.
Baylor already was without 1,000-yard rusher Terence Williams. The junior is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. Rhule is optimistic Williams can return in a “couple of weeks.”
