Dealing With Injuries, Baylor Looking Elsewhere for Reps

Waco, TX - As several Baylor players continue to heal from injuries suffered last season, particularly at Wide Receiver, The Bears are looking elsewhere for players to take reps this spring.

One of those players is quarterback Preston Heard who has been asked to take some reps at wide receiver, as they deal with limited numbers.

"It's fun," he said. "I love playing receiver, I played a little bit in high school, so, it's not unnatural for me, just getting on the field however I can be used."

Co-Offensive Coordinator Jeff Nixon said the depth chart is ever-changing this spring, so he's just doing his best to coach the guys that are in there.

"Every quarterback has gone with every receiver on the depth chart," he said. "You've just got to try and teach concepts, with whoever is in there."
