Some guys just can’t catch a break.

One of those guys is Baylor junior Tuswani Copeland who tore his Achilles tendon Saturday during spring drills and is expected to be out the entire fall.

Copeland had just switched from cornerback to receiver last week, and the Baylor coaches were excited about the move.

Copeland missed all of the 2011 season with a torn ACL that he suffered during preseason drills. He recovered from the injury and played sparingly last season as he made two tackles in nine games.

Baylor coach Art Briles feared that Copeland had torn his Achilles tendon when he saw him go down Saturday.

“It’s really disheartening,” Briles said. “With an ankle injury you’ll usually get up from the ground and try. When it’s an Achilles, your body tells you no. So I was pretty sure that’s what it was.”
