Baylor's Norwood out after wrist surgery

Baylor's high-powered offense keeps taking hits.

Starting receiver Levi Norwood has become the team's latest player to get slapped with an injury. Norwood will miss at least the next three weeks after undergoing wrist surgery for an injury he suffered in the opener against SMU, Baylor coach Art Briles told the Waco Herald-Tribune on Thursday.

Norwood, who had four receptions last week against SMU, caught 47 passes for 733 yards and eight touchdowns last season.

He's not the only key offensive player the Bears could be without against Northwestern State on Saturday.

Quarterback Bryce Petty has been sitting out practice this week after cracking two transverse processes in his back against SMU.

Briles said he doesn't expect starting receivers Antwan Goodley (quad) or Corey Coleman (hamstring) to play this weekend, either. The Bears already are without receiver Clay Fuller, who broke his clavicle in August.
