No. 11 Baylor could get big-play WR Cannon back this week

WACO, Texas (AP) Baylor big-play receiver KD Cannon could be back for the 11th-ranked Bears this week.

Cannon missed Baylor's win Oct. 1 at Iowa State because of a groin injury that also limited him in the previous game.

Coach Jim Grobe said Monday that the Bears (5-0) were careful with Cannon in practice last week before the open date. But Grobe said the junior receiver should be full speed at practice this week before Baylor hosts Kansas on Saturday.

Cannon has 27 catches for 370 yards and four touchdowns in his four games. After nine catches for 213 yards and two TDs at Rice on Sept. 16, he had only three catches for 18 yards against Oklahoma State the next week before missing the Iowa State game.
