Baylor's Seth Russell cleared to get 'back to work' after neck surgery

BY foxsports • February 1, 2016

Baylor QB Seth Russell, who in October had season-ending neck surgery, announced on his Instagram account Monday that he has been medically cleared to return to the field and work on football.

Russell had thrown an FBS-leading 29 touchdown passes at the time of his injury. He’d also run for six touchdowns for what was an unbeaten Baylor team that ranked No. 2 in the nation at the time of his injury. Russell finished the season completing 60 percent of his passes with only six interceptions and took just three sacks in seven games. 

In his career at Baylor, the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Russell has a 40-10 TD-INT ratio.
