TCU fans can likely say goodbye to their team’s Big 12 title hopes as Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson announced today on Sirius XM show Full Ride that star wide receiver Josh Doctson would miss the rest of the season with a wrist injury. Chris Childers, host of Full Ride, posted the unfortunate news on Twitter.
Doctson, a senior from Mansfield, Texas, near Dallas, leads all Horned Frogs receivers this season with 78 catches for 1,315 yards and 14 touchdowns. He will also miss the postseason. In his absence, either KaVontae Turpin or Kolby Listenbee should assume No. 1 receiver duties.
But neither man is as much of a threat as Doctson, even in an air raid offense. He has a strong on-field chemistry with quarterback Trevone Boykin and without him, TCU’s Big 12 and playoff hopes are practically sunk.
TCU will look to win without Doctson when it takes on winless Kansas on Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 12 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1.
