Kelly Bryant was having himself a day in the first half against Troy until he took a cheap shot just before halftime.

The senior QB had completed 12 of 19 passes for 221 yards and three touchdowns. He also had a rushing touchdown in the first half.

The Tigers are up 42-7 on Troy at the break but the mood in Columbia is somber as the team’s star quarterback was taken to the locker room early after taking a brutal shot to his left knee. Bryant remained down for some time before walking off the field.

Barry Odom was asked about the status of his signal-caller at the break.

“I think it was his left knee, we will go in and get it evaluated,” Odom said of Bryant. “He was fairly positive when he stood up. I’m a half glass full guy so we’ll see how it goes.”
