Kansas State sophomore WR Dalton Schoen (collarbone) will miss the Oklahoma State game on Saturday.

Schoen suffered a broken collarbone last week against West Virginia. Per Kellis Robinett of the Wichita Eagle, the "injury will likely end his season." Schoen emerged as one of the team's best receivers this year, posting a 23-470-3 line.

Current Oregon defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt had his deal with Kansas State scrapped by Kansas State HC Bill Snyder.

The deal would have made Leavitt the "head coach in waiting" and paid him $3 million dollars guaranteed if he wasn't named the head coach by January 1, 2018. Snyder apparently had the deal nixed in at least part because he wants current special teams coach Sean Snyder to replace him. As you might have guessed, Sean is Snyder's son. "I have a strong belief, and my preference is Sean," per McMurphy. "He knows more about our football program than anyone. He runs our program. I have great confidence in him," Snyder has said. Leavitt will likely be a hot commodity this offseason for what he did with Colorado in 2016 and the respectable job he's done with Oregon in 2017.

Kansas State redshirt junior RB Dalvin Warmack ran for 96 yards on 14 carries in a 28-23 loss to West Virginia on Saturday.

Warmack did almost all of his damage in the first half, and actually had negative rushing yards in the second half. Still, his strong effort on the ground kept the Wildcats in the game in the first half, and set up two short rushing touchdowns for Winston Dimel. Warmack has not been a huge part of the KSU offense this year, but he may have earned more carries going forward, potentially starting next week against Oklahoma State.

Kansas State redshirt freshman QB Skylar Thompson will start Saturday's game against West Virginia.

Thompson draws the start due to injuries to Jesse Ertz and Alex Delton. In limited action this season, the 6-foot-2, 195-pounder has completed 10-of-16 passes for 147 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 105 yards on 21 carries.
Nov 11 - 3:10 PM

Kansas State redshirt sophomore QB Alex Delton (undisclosed) is not warming up in advance of Saturday's game against West Virginia.

Delton was knocked out by a helmet-to-helmet hit versus Texas Tech last weekend. He won't be playing on Saturday. Nor will Jesse Ertz, who remains sidelined by a knee injury. It'll be the Skylar Thompson show in Saturday's contest.
Nov 11 - 3:01 PM

Kansas State redshirt junior QB Jesse Ertz (knee) is not warming up in advance of Saturday's game against West Virginia.

No real surprise, here. Ertz injured his knee at the beginning of October and has not played since. With Alex Delton (undisclosed) also sitting out warmups, it looks like the Wildcats will be rolling with Skylar Thompson against the Mountaineers.
Nov 11 - 2:58 PM

Alex Delton (undisclosed) was forced out of Saturday's game in the first half at Texas Tech due to an undisclosed injury.

Delton suffered a helmet-to-helmet hit late in the first half, a play which drew a roughing the passer call against the Red Raiders. He did not return for the second half or overtime, giving way to Skylar Thompson. The Wildcats were already without starter Jesse Ertz (knee) going into the game, but Thompson showed that Bill Snyder's club has tremendous depth by engineering the game-winning drive in overtime.

Kansas State junior WR Byron Pringle finished with six receptions for 95 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's overtime victory at Texas Tech.

Pringle hooked up with backup Alex Delton in the second quarter on a 19-yard scoring connection, and then he reeled in the game-winning touchdown in overtime from third-stringer Skylar Thompson. It was the junior's first visit to the end zone since Sept. 2 against Central Arkansas, and it was also his best yardage total since that opening game victory. He has posted 70 or more receiving yards in each of the past four outings.
Nov 4 - 4:43 PM

Kansas State HC Bill Snyder expressed confidence in redshirt sophomore QB Alex Delton (undisclosed) for Saturday's game against Texas Tech.

Delton was starting in place of Jesse Ertz against Kansas last weekend when he was forced out of the game with an undisclosed injury concern, possibly a concussion. Just who will start on Saturday is currently unclear, as Ertz is close to returning from a knee injury. Our best guess is that Delton will start in this spot so long as he's healthy enough to do so.
Nov 3 - 5:42 PM

Kansas State HC Bill Snyder is optimistic about redshirt sophomore QB Alex Delton's (undisclosed) status.

Delton was removed from Saturday's game against Kansas with an injury. That injury is undisclosed, but the Topeka Capital-Journal speculated that Delton might be in the concussion protocol. "Alex feels fine," Snyder said. "He was doing well this morning." With Jesse Ertz's status still up in the air and Delton hobbled, it's possible that Skylar Thompson will have to make a spot start when K-State travels to Texas Tech this weekend.
Oct 31 - 4:47 PM

Kansas State HC Bill Snyder refuted a report that redshirt junior QB Jesse Ertz (knee) is out for the season.

On Monday morning, K-StateOnline.com managing editor and columnist Jeffrey Martin reported: "[Ertz is out f]or the Texas Tech game for certain, sources confirmed to K-StateOnline. In addition, multiple sources told KSO it’s likely the senior quarterback is finished for the year." Snyder responded: "I don’t think it’s accurate. I don’t know anything about it other than what I know about Jesse, and Jesse is going to play again." Snyder was then asked if Ertz would play on Saturday when K-State faces Texas Tech. "We’re hoping so and planning on it," Snyder said. "It’s a day-by-day thing. He will be back on the field, at least that’s my understanding unless something happened overnight that I’m not aware of. He should be back on the field, but just how quickly remains to be seen."
Oct 30 - 2:22 PM

Kansas State sophomore RB Alex Barnes ran for 128 yards and two scores on 23 carries in Saturday's 30-20 victory over Kansas.

Barnes was his typical efficient, non-explosive self, rumbling for 128 yards with a high of only 22. With today's performance, the 6-foot-1, 221-pounder set a new career-high with 528 rushing yards to go along with five touchdowns. He has four regular season contests and perhaps a bowl game to add to those totals, beginning next week against Texas Tech.
Oct 28 - 7:07 PM

Kansas State redshirt sophomore QB Alex Delton did not start the second half of Saturday's game against Kansas due to an injury sustained earlier in the contest.

Delton was shaken up in the first half, but was later spotted throwing the ball on the sideline. However, following the halftime break, he was not seen with the rest of the team. Skylar Thompson started the second half in his place and at this juncture, Delton should be considered questionable to return.
Oct 28 - 5:19 PM

Kansas State redshirt junior QB Jesse Ertz (knee) is not dressed for Saturday's game against Kansas.

Ertz is set to miss his third consecutive game due to a knee injury. Taking starting honors in his place once more will be Alex Delton. There remains no current timetable for Ertz's return to action, but K-State had some hope that the redshirt junior could return for this weekend's contest, a sign that he might not be too far off.
Oct 28 - 2:26 PM

Kansas State football coach Bill Snyder said he doesn't know when redshirt junior QB Jesse Ertz (knee) will return, but that it's possible it could be this weekend against Kansas.

Ertz has missed the last two games with a knee injury. In his place, Alex Delton was rock solid in last Saturday's 42-35 loss to Oklahoma. Snyder reaffirmed that Ertz is the team's No. 1 quarterback when healthy. Ertz wasn’t seen on the sideline during the game. "Jesse is healthier now," Snyder said. "I’m not sure where we’ll be and won’t know that … at some point in time in the week we will but I’m not sure when. He’s back on his feet and going pretty well right now."
