Baylor coach Jim Grobe hasn’t rushed receiver KD Cannon back to practice after he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in early July.
But he expects Cannon to be back to workouts early next week.
“KD could go right now, but there’s no reason for us to do that,” Grobe said. “The more time we give him the better he’s going to feel. He’s one of those guys you don’t have to find out if he can play.”
Cannon is expected to be Baylor’s top receiver after making 108 catches for 1,898 yards and 14 touchdowns in his first two seasons.
Cannon was a preseason all-Big 12 pick.
“He’s working out in the weight room right now,” Grobe said. “Coach Kaz (Kazadi) has got him doing a lot of stuff. I was really disappointed he hurt his knee. I thought he was having an exceptional summer. He looks great.”
