A lot of people wondered where TE Tre'Von Armstead was for last week's game against Lamar. Wonder no more!
Baylor tight end Tre'Von Armstead missed Lamar game because of violation of team rules. Briles hopes to have him back for Rice.— John Werner (@JohnWernerTrib) September 16, 2015
He was suspended, apparently, although strangely enough, we didn't hear about it. If anybody official knows why, they're not sharing much. The idea that Briles "hopes" to have him back gives me some pause, though, since you would expect that if anybody could say for sure, it would be Briles. One more...
On if it was just going to be a one game suspension Briles : "not really sure, we're just looking into it. We will see how it goes along."— Zach Burke (@ZacharyBurke) September 16, 2015
Strange. Makes me wonder if there's something else going on there.
Baylor DC Phil Bennett says Chance Waz battling Terrell Burt for starting safety spot.— John Werner (@JohnWernerTrib) September 16, 2015
Another juicy tidbit about something prevalent on people's minds! This two-week period with the bye could be critical for Burt, a senior that has started each of the last three years. He was pulled from Saturday's game due to what Briles (or Bennett, I can't remember) called "flow," which I can only assume has something to do with performance.
How this shakes out will be something to watch, for sure.
Baylor running back Devin Chafin sitting out of practice, dealing with hamstring issue.— John Werner (@JohnWernerTrib) September 16, 2015
That's not good news, but it's not unexpected after he left last game, either. Best of luck to Chafin as he tries to get back on the field!
Have heard scouts from New England, Oakland, Detroit, Atlanta, Green Bay, Jacksonville and Cleveland were at Baylor's practice today.— Colt Barber (@Colt_247Sports) September 16, 2015
A couple of those teams could be picking towards the end of the first round (New England, Green Bay), but most should be pretty high. Particularly Cleveland, since I think they get a top-10 pick every year out of some archaic law.
Had college coach tell me 2yrs ago that RSFr Baylor RB Terence Williams didn't know how good he could be. Already has 22 for 194 in 2 games— Colt Barber (@Colt_247Sports) September 16, 2015
Just posting this one because I am 100% ON THE TWILL 2.0 TRAIN!
