TCU QB Hill questionable against Texas Tech
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.”
