The TCU Horned Frogs will be moving forward for the foreseeable future without the services of leading receiver and punt returner KaVonte Turpin.
According the Star-Telegram, TCU head coach Gary Patterson announced Turpin will be out for an indefinite amount of time due to an unspecified injury that he suffered in last weekend’s win over Iowa State.
Rumors have indicated Turpin may have suffered a torn posterior cruciate ligament (PCL).
If that is the case, Turpin’s season could be over.
However, there was some positive news from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram with “[a] person close to the team said the injury does not appear to require surgery, which could mean Turpin is back after four to six weeks.”
Through three games, Turbin has recorded 16 catches for 196 yards, both leading the team. Turbin also averages 28.8 yards per punt return which tops the nation.
TCU returns to action this weekend against cross-town rival SMU Friday night on ESPN.
