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

This isn't a surprising development, but it ends a strange six-week stretch in which Synder repeatedly stated that Ertz would return this season. The coach has frequently labeled Ertz week-to-week since he suffered the injury in early-October. Snyder refuted a report in late-October that Ertz was out for the year. Regardless, KSU will continue to roll with Skylar Thompson or Alex Delton (undisclosed injury) behind center.

Kansas State redshirt junior S Kendall Adams had four tackles and a big interception in last Saturday's upset victory over Oklahoma State.

The 6-foot-4, 211-pounder is making good on his obvious physical tools. "Adams has weak side linebacker size, hits like a ton of bricks and also shows legitimate ball skills," Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote. "He offers starting possibilities as a traditional strong safety or in a zone system."

Kansas State redshirt freshman QB Skylar Thompson completed 10-of-13 passes for 204 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 93 yards and an additional score in Saturday's 45-40 win over Oklahoma State.

Just a masterful performance from Thompson, who was almost perfect as a passer. He also led the team in rushing with his 93 yards. He's filled in for the injured Jesse Ertz and Alex Delton each of the past two games and would do likewise again versus Iowa State in the regular-season finale next weekend unless K-State gets one of their walking-wounded signal-callers back in time for that contest.

Kansas State junior WR Byron Pringle caught four passes for 166 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 45-40 win over Oklahoma State.

Pringle (6'2/205) posted his best game of the season in this one while helping Kansas State (6-5) to achieve bowl eligibility. All three of his touchdown grabs on the evening were of the long variety -- they went for 47, 46 and 60. In addition, the junior also went off for an 89-yard kickoff return for a score midway through the second quarter. Prior to this monster showing, Pringle had not topped 100 yards receiving since he put in 121 yards against Central Arkansas in the first game of the season.

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.
Nov 11 - 7:31 PM

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.

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.

Nov 4 - 5:14 PM

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."
