TCU running back Kendre Miller went down with a knee injury in the first half against Michigan, and although he gave it a go after halftime, Miller returned to the sidelines hobbled early in the third quarter and didn’t return for the remainder of the Frogs’ 51-45 victory.
The Horned Frogs certainly hope that Miller is good to go come Monday, as Miller has been responsible for 1,399 yards and 17 touchdowns on the ground this season, while averaging 6.2 yards per carry.
On Tuesday, TCU head coach Sonny Dykes gave an update on Miller’s status with six days until the National Championship, saying that he was “questionable” at the moment.
Having its leading rusher back in the fold is vital to TCU’s chances against Georgia this week, and after the Fiesta Bowl Miller seemed confident that he would give it a go on Monday, January 9th.
“My knee bent in and kind of buckled,” he told media after the game. “It feels kind of loose right now, but I don’t think it’s that bad. I had an MCL sprain earlier in the year, but it’s not near as bad as that. I think I’ll be good next week.”
TCU is currently seen by oddsmakers as a nearly two-touchdown underdog to Georgia on Monday, with the line set at 13.5 points with just under a week until the game. If you haven’t yet, make sure to check out our preview of the game.
