The year of the quarterback injury in the SEC continues.

This evening, Missouri star quarterback Kelly Bryant took a late hit to the knee on the team’s final drive of the second half against Troy, forcing him to miss the rest of the game.

After looking at the replay, it certainly didn’t look good, as the Troy pass-rusher very obviously took out Bryant’s left leg after the ball was out of his hand.

Missouri proceeded to take down Troy by a final score of 42-10, failing to score a single point in the second half following Bryant’s injury.

As bad as things looked, though, Missouri team doctor Jonathan Nance said that “everything’s fine,” with other Tiger reporters indicating that the injury doesn’t appear to be serious.

Kentucky takes on Missouri at home on October 26, just three weeks from today. While the school believes the injury won’t be a serious one, it remains to be seen whether or not he will miss time in the immediate future while he recovers.

Just six weeks into the season, starting quarterbacks Jake Bentley (South Carolina), Terry Wilson (Kentucky), and Feleipe Franks (Florida) have all suffered season-ending injuries, while multiple other starters such as Tommy Stevens (Mississippi State) and Jarrett Guarantano (Tennessee) have also dealt with other injuries, as well.

    I honestly hope he doesn’t have to miss time but more importantly, I hope the kid is ok and doesn’t have anything serious with his knee. I truly want all these kids to have healthy careers and be the best they can be. Having said that, I don’t think the guy was actually trying to hurt him and in real time it looked like he had already started going and no way he could stop. Anyway I know they’re trying to protect the players and I agree with them trying to make the game safer, but, Football is a rough sport with some big, strong, fast Dudes and Sometimes a play is just a Football play.

    Not coincidentally, UKs projection for beating UM dropped to 0% as they cannot beat backup QBs.

    Hope this kid is okay. Tough way to get hurt … in crap time of a blowout.

    Looks like a cheap shot to the knee

    We are really on our 6th string QB considering two transferred and Scalzo, Wilson and Smith are injured.

    Not a complete cheap shot the olineman shoved him.

    They need to eject boneheads like this instead of the crap they call on targeting…

    Late hit, too late in game. What’s he doing in the game at 42-7? Hope he’s alright…..

    That certainly looked like a dirty move to me… Regardless of team affiliation it sucks to see these kids with tons of potential get injured. Hope he makes a speedy recovery.

    What is the guy doing in the game on the final drive up 42-7? This one is all on the coach, sorry. Just makes no sense. No excuse for it. If they had been up by one TD or something, thats different. I would have the same expectation for UK’s coaches in the same situation. U just dont leave ur starter in at the end of a 40-pt blowout.
