"Hubert is one of my good friends on the team and I know how hard he has worked," said quarterback Brandon Weeden. "This hurts and I'm hurting for Hubert. We have a lot of weapons and today Isaiah (Anderson) did a good job of stepping up and so did (Michael) Harrison for Blackmon in the second half."
Yes, Justin Blackmon, and the report on the Cowboys All-American wide receiver and defending Biletnikoff Award winner is that he had a head injury, just serious enough to hold him out for precautionary reasons and to prevent a more severe situation. Gundy said Blackmon should be back at practice this week. He was standing on the sideline and following the action and being involved talking to coaches and teammates. Blackmon finished with a team high eight catches for 54 yards and a touchdown, all in the first half.
Three other injuries to mention as cornerback Brodrick Brown and defensive end Richetti Jones each ended up with interceptions, that wasn't the only thing they had in common as Brown suffered a first half hip bruise and Jones had one in the second half. Both players got treatment after the game and should be fine, although those injuries typically become more sore and annoying 24-48 hours following the game.
Defensive end Cooper Bassett made the trip and suited up, but did not play at all. Bassett had a stinger against Texas on a punt play. He aggravated it this week and was held out to allow full time to heal. He should be ready; along with Blackmon, Brown, and Jones; for Baylor.
