TCU QB Max Duggan Cleared to Play vs. Iowa State

NCAA Football: Kansas at Texas Christian

Exactly one month ago it looked like TCU might be without starting quarterback Max Duggan for an extended period of time. However now it looks like he could be back without ever missing a game. That’s 2020 for ya.

During Monday’s Big 12 coaches teleconference, TCU head coach Gary Patterson said that Duggan has been cleared to play and is an option for this weekend’s opener against Iowa State.

However it still seems as if Matthew Downing, the Georgia Bulldogs transfer, has been getting the most first-team reps.


It’s still not clear what exactly Duggan has been dealing with, as it was reported last month he had an “undisclosed health condition.” The condition was one that he has had his entire life, but apparently it was not discovered until recently as TCU has ramped up their testing protocols due to COVID-19.

Joining Matthew Downing in the QB room is Stephon Brown who was a former number one rated JUCO dual threat quarterback.

TCU had its season opener postponed due to COVID-19 and will take on Iowa State at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.
