Kelly Bryant ‘might even cry’ when he first plays after so much time off

New Missouri quarterback Kelly Bryant expects to feel plenty of emotions when he first takes the field for the Tigers this coming season.

Bryant was asked about how he may react when he plays this year after missing most of the 2018 season following his decision to leave Clemson and transfer to Missouri.

He responded by saying, “I might even cry,” per Barrett Sallee of CBS Sports.

Bryant lost his starting job last year early in the season. True freshman Trevor Lawrence burst onto the scene, forcing Bryant out of the staring lineup. The decision by head coach Dabo Swinney to oust his championship-winning quarterback didn’t sit well with Bryant, who shortly afterward left the team.

Now with a fresh start at Missouri, Bryant will have another chance to prove he’s one of the elite quarterbacks in college football.
