Report: Baylor punter Drew Galitz could miss season with injury

Baylor punter Drew Galitz could miss the remainder of the 2017 season after suffering a lower-leg injury against Kansas, per KWTX’s Taylor Williamson.

Galitz left the game after tweaking his knee on a kickoff. He limped off the field and iced his knee on the sideline. Galitz did not return.

The junior was having one of the best seasons in the conference by a punter. Heading into Baylor’s game against Kansas State, Galitz led the Big 12 in total punting yards.

His 45.2 punt average is second to preseason All-American Michael Dickson, and nearly 3 yards ahead of the next guy. Galitz also ranks second in the Big 12 with six punts over 50 yards.

With Galitz out, placekicker Connor Martin will take over punting and kickoff duties. Martin averaged 42 yards on his three punts in relief.
