Texas Tech has suffered a potentially devastating injury, as starting quarterback Baker Mayfield appeared to injure his knee in the team's game against Kansas.

According to Bryan Fischer of the Pac-12 Network, the freshman needed help to get off the field:

Yikes, Baker Mayfield being helped off by Texas Tech trainers. The QB didn’t put any weight on his leg and pointed to his knee.

His Week 7 status remains in question.
