WACO, Texas (AP) Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty is feeling better and could play this week for the eighth-ranked Bears.

Coach Art Briles said Monday that Petty was sore, but not in pain, after being able to run and do some other things. Petty missed the Bears' 70-6 victory Saturday night over FCS team Northwestern State because of two cracked small bones in his back.

Briles says he thinks Petty will be back at Buffalo on Friday night. The coach says receiver Antwan Goodley is still 50-50 with a groin issue that kept him out Saturday.

Seth Russell, who started for Petty on Saturday, was named co-Big 12 offensive player of the week Monday. Russell had 438 yards passing and five touchdowns while playing only the first half against the Demons.
