Injuries to Jakeem Grant, Bradley Marquez limit Tech’s depth at inside receiver

Texas Tech might face a lack of depth at inside receiver Saturday.

Injuries made starters Jakeem Grant and Bradley Marquez questionable for Tech’s 2:30 p.m. game at No. 10 TCU. Grant was hurt early Sunday morning in what the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office is classifying as a stabbing, and Marquez is battling a rib injury.

Red Raiders coach Kliff Kingsbury expects Grant to play but said it’s not “100 percent” likely. Kingsbury added Marquez is “day to day.”

Before the Sunday morning incident, Grant was dealing with left shoulder and left ankle injuries in last Saturday’s 34-21 home win against Kansas.

“I think they’re both things we can manage,” Kingsbury said. “He should be ready to go this Saturday.”
