Baylor TE Drake Dabney to have surgery on broken fibula

Drake Dabney sustained a leg injury in Baylor's 45-17 win at Texas Tech on Saturday.

WACO, Texas — Baylor tight end Drake Dabney will likely miss the remainder of the 2022 college football season after suffering a broken fibula in Saturday's game. 

On Monday, Oct. 31 Baylor head coach Dave Aranda told reporters Dabney would have surgery that day to repair the broken fibula.

Dabney was carted off the field in the first half following a catch in Lubbock.

The junior from Cypress, Texas, made two catches Saturday for 12 yards before his injury. Dabney has 16 catches for 173 yards on the season.

Dabney caught social media attention in Baylor's 31-24 win at Iowa State on Sept. 24th for hurdling a Cyclone defender while picking up a first down after a catch in the third quarter.

The Bears are scheduled to return to the field at 2 p.m. Saturday at Oklahoma. The game will be carried on ESPN+.
