WACO, Texas (AP) — Baylor senior quarterback Seth Russell had surgery Wednesday on his fractured left ankle.
According to a statement from his family, Russell's surgery in Fort Worth was successful and he is expected to make a full recovery.
Russell suffered the gruesome injury in the third quarter of Baylor's 45-24 loss at Big 12-leading Oklahoma on Saturday.
The family statement said that Russell was questionable to play in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 28, a game for which the quarterback has already accepted an invitation, but should be ready for the 2017 NFL Combine that begins Feb. 28 in Indianapolis.
Russell had 2,126 yards passing with 20 touchdowns and eight interceptions, and also ran for 506 yards and eight more scores this season. He was 14-3 as the Bears starter.
