WACO, Texas – Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty is set to play against Kansas State on Saturday night, one week after suffering a concussion.
School officials said Friday that Petty has been medically cleared for the fifth-ranked Bears when they play the ninth-ranked Wildcats. The winner is guaranteed at least a share of the Big 12 title, with Baylor the defending champion.
Petty was full participant in practice Thursday, though he was still progressing through the concussion protocol.
After taking a high hit midway through the third quarter in last Saturday's 48-46 win over Texas Tech, Petty came out of that game with what the team called a "mild concussion."
Even when he was still having headaches Monday, Petty said then he expected to play in the home finale against the Wildcats.
