Kirk Herbstreit apologizes for saying Baylor’s Terrell Burt faked injury

Monday November 16th, 2015

ABC analyst Kirk Hebrstreit apologized to Baylor defensive back Terrell Burt on Sunday.

Herbstreit accused Burt of faking an injury during the Bears’ game against Oklahoma on Saturday. Burt appeared to lay down on the field to slow down the Sooners’ offense, but the senior actually sustained an ankle injury. Video showed a teammate told Burt to go down so he could be looked at by trainers. 

Sunday, Burt said he would never fake an injury.

Herbstreit apologized in a series of tweets.
