As the TCU Horned Frogs get set to take on the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday, they might be without two of their biggest weapons.
According to head coach Gary Patterson, starting quarterback Max Duggan and running back Zach Evans are both questionable. Patterson did not share any details on the injuries, but both players were out before the end of the Texas Tech game.
Patterson was not interested in fielding more questions, saying, “That’s all I’m telling you unless you want to shut off these cameras and do all of it. … No, I’m not going to tell you anyways.”
Backup quarterback Matthew Downing took snaps on the final offensive possession, while Evans sat out the second half with a foot injury.
Duggan is 75 of 116 passing for 1,003 yards with nine touchdowns and two interceptions. He’s also rushed for 186 yards and two scores. Meantime, Evans has been TCU’s best offensive weapon and turned into one of the best running backs in the Big 12 Conference. He’s rushed for at least 100 yards in four-straight games, the first TCU player to do that in 19 seasons. He has 586 rushing yards and five scores, plus one receiving touchdown.
In other injury news, cornerback Noah Daniels is probable, while linebacker Wyatt Harris, safety Bud Clark and defensive tackle Corey Bethley are all questionable.
