TCU QB Hill ques­tion­able against Texas Tech

The Oklahoman - - SPORTS -

No. 11 TCU is ap­par­ently hurt­ing af­ter the loss that dropped the Horned Frogs out of a share for the Big 12 lead.

TCU quar­ter­back Kenny Hill and lead­ing tack­ler Travin Howard are among sev­eral key play­ers that coach Gary Pat­ter­son said Tues­day are “be­tween prob­a­ble and ques­tion­able” to play the next game at Texas Tech.

“That’s all I’m go­ing to say. I wasn’t go­ing to even say that, but I feel like it’s good for the money peo­ple and any­body else that has to do with it,” Pat­ter­son said. “You get to de­cide if I say prob­a­ble or ques­tion­able. I feel like that’s as fair as I can be and still take care of my team.”

Safety Niko Small and line­backer Mon­trel Wil­son, who has dealt with in­juries all sea­son, are also ques­tion­able.

Run­ning back Dar­ius An­der­son, the team’s lead­ing rusher with 768 yards and eight touch­downs, will miss the rest of the sea­son af­ter suf­fer­ing an un­spe­cific leg in­jury at Ok­la­homa.

While not elab­o­rat­ing on the sta­tus of Hill or the oth­ers, Pat­ter­son said that highly touted fresh­man quar­ter­back Shawn Robinson would be ready to play against the Red Raiders.

Pat­ter­son said Hill was a lit­tle bet­ter Tues­day, again with­out pro­vid­ing any de­tails. He said Hill and the oth­ers could be game-time de­ci­sions at Texas Tech.

The coach also men­tioned that “ev­ery­body wants to see Shawn Robinson at some point in time.” Even Pat­ter­son in­di­cated af­ter the OU game that he wanted to see more of Robinson, who has ap­peared in five games for the Frogs and was the 201617 Ga­torade Texas Player of the Year last sea­son when he led DeSoto High to its first Class 6A state cham­pi­onship.

Iowa State QB Kempt ‘day-to-day’

Iowa State has four guys who can play quar­ter­back.

But Joel Lan­ning is bet­ter as a line­backer, Ja­cob Park is on a leave of ab­sence and Kyle Kempt is battling through an undis­closed in­jury, leav­ing fresh­man

Zeb Noland as the pos­si­ble starter for Satur­day’s game at Bay­lor (1-9, 1-6 Big 12). Kempt’s health is cru­cial for Iowa State (6-4, 4-3) given that he and Noland are the only avail­able quar­ter­backs left with two games to go.

Cy­clones coach Matt Camp­bell said Mon­day that Kempt is “day-to-day” and he will prob­a­bly know by Wed­nes­day if Kempt will play this week­end.

“It’s noth­ing where it needs surgery or any­thing where it’s go­ing to be an ex­tended pe­riod of time,” Camp­bell said. “He was able to prac­tice (Sun­day), which was a pos­i­tive.”
