Pete Thamel Reports: Baylor Senior Linebacker Clay Johnston Out for Season with Torn ACL

NCAA Football: Texas-San Antonio at Baylor Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Pete Thamel of Yahoo reports that Clay Johnston has torn his ACL and will miss the remainder of the season.

Johnston is Baylor’s starting middle linebacker and one of the team’s best players. The senior will not play again for the Bears.

Johnston’s loss will be a monumental challenge for the Bears. In their 3-3-5 alignment, he’s responsible for making big tackles and has effectively played multiple gaps in the run game.
