TCU HC Gary Patterson said Monday that redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill (concussion) is "closer to probable" for Friday's tilt with Baylor.

Hill didn't travel to Lubbock for Saturday's win over Texas Tech. "I think he’s got a chance to be back," Patterson said. "You know me, I’m going to tell the truth. I’m not one of those guys, ‘If they show up or don’t show up’ on game day. I’d say, probable to questionable, and I’d probably say closer to probable. Now." Freshman QB Shawn Robinson played well in Hill's absence on Saturday. He'd start again if Hill can't go.

TCU freshman QB Shawn Robinson completed 6-of-17 passes for 85 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 84 yards in Saturday's 27-3 win over Texas Tech.

Robinson drew the start in place of the injured Kenny Hill. He didn't do much as a passer against the Red Raiders, but did show some off some nice moves on the ground in leading the team with his 84 yards rushing (on 10 carries). Almost half of those yards came on a 41-yard gallop by the four-star true freshman. Whether he sees another start against Baylor next Friday will depend on how Hill progresses during the upcoming practice week.

TCU redshirt senior RB Kyle Hicks rushed for 81 yards on 22 carries in Saturday's 27-3 win over Texas Tech.

This was the first time we've seen Hicks as TCU's out-and-out No. 1 back this season, as Darius Anderson has been ruled out for the remainder due to a right foot injury. The two backs had been working in a timeshare previously. While Hicks finished with relatively modest numbers against the Red Raiders on Saturday, we like him for a potential 100-yard performance in next Friday's regular-season finale against Baylor.

TCU senior LB Travin Howard (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Saturday against Texas Tech.

Howard spoke with reporters after Oklahoma game last week and didn't appear to be injured. The injury he's dealing with, and when he suffered it, hasn't been disclosed.
Nov 17 - 5:55 PM

TCU HC Gary Patterson said Thursday that sophomore K Jonathan Song (groin) will not make the trip to Texas Tech.

Song, who was unable to practice last week, dressed for the Oklahoma game but didn't kick. This time around, he'll stay at home and hope to be ready for the finale against Baylor.
Nov 17 - 5:04 PM

TCU junior S Niko Small (concussion) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Texas Tech.

Small is staying back in Fort Worth to recuperate this weekend. Innis Gaines will likely start in Small’s place at safety. Gaines is heavily used as a rotational defender and has 25 tackles, five TFL, and three pass breakups this year.

TCU freshman QB Shawn Robinson will start against Texas Tech on Saturday.

Robinson is getting the call with redshirt senior Kenny Hill suffering from a concussion. Robinson, the No. 6-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the country and a four-star recruit in the last class, is the highest-rated QB recruit to ever sign with TCU. The 247Sports Composite ranked him as the nation’s No. 198 overall recruit. "Dude has a rocket arm," Hill said of Robinson in July. "Like he can sling it. He can run. He just does a lot of things really well." Texas Tech's soft defense provides a nice matchup for his first start, but Robinson is obviously inexperienced.

TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill (concussion) will not play in Saturday's game against Texas Tech.

Due to his head injury, Hill is not traveling with the team to Lubbock. Shawn Robinson will draw the start at quarterback in his place, with Grayson Muehlstein his backup. Hill now has a week to recuperate in an attempt to get back on the field for the regular season finale next Friday against Baylor. Of course, TCU is going to prioritize having Hill ready to go if they make the Big 12 title game on Dec. 2. The Frogs will have to beat the Red Raiders to have a clear shot at that.

TCU sophomore RB Darius Anderson (leg) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

This was the initial fear after Anderson injured his right leg against Oklahoma on Saturday. Horned Frogs HC Gary Patterson officially spelled out the bad news for the 5-foot-11, 205-pounder on Tuesday afternoon. The sophomore finishes the year having rushed for 768 yards (6.0 YPC) and eight touchdowns in 10 games. Kyle Hicks will work as starter for the short remainder with Anderson now ruled out. TCU will tango with Texas Tech and Baylor over the final two weekends of the regular season.

TCU freshman QB Shawn Robinson would start against Texas Tech on Saturday if redshirt senior Kenny Hill (undisclosed) is unable to play.

Robinson (6'1/205) was a four-star dual-threat quarterback in TCU's 2017 class. Horned Frogs HC Gary Patterson is unconcerned about any jitters if the true frosh is thrust into the starting fire this weekend, saying, "He's played in state championships in Texas ... 50,000 people. If he has to play, he'll be fine." In limited action covering five games this season, Robinson has completed 7-of-10 passes for 99 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill (undisclosed) is questionable for Saturday's game against Texas Tech.

Hill was apparently dinged up in Saturday's loss to Oklahoma. He threw for 270 yards and a touchdown in the defeat. If he is unable to give it a go against the Red Raiders this coming weekend, true freshman Shawn Robinson would draw the start in his place. Hill's playing status should receive clarity closer to kickoff.

TCU sophomore RB Darius Anderson (leg) is likely out for the season, according to HC Gary Patterson.

Anderson was seen with a boot on his right leg, and left the game against Oklahoma on Saturday and did not return. With Anderson likely to miss at least the next couple of weeks -- if not the whole season as Patterson suspects -- Kyle Hicks will be the top option in the Horned Frogs backfield for at least the immediate future.
Nov 12 - 12:17 AM

TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill completed just 13-of-28 passes for 270 yards and a touchdown in a 20-38 loss to Oklahoma on Saturday.

In both of TCU's losses, Hill has struggled; completing less than 50 percent of his passes. Much of the 270 yards -- including a three-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Hicks -- came with the game out of reach. He did add 40 yards on the ground, and scored on a keeper from one-yard out to briefly get the Horned Frogs back in the game at 24-14 in the second quarter. TCU's playoff hopes are done, but they'll look to rebound next week against Texas Tech.
Nov 12 - 12:02 AM

TCU sophomore RB Darius Anderson left Saturday's game against Oklahoma in the second quarter due to an undisclosed injury.

The exact nature of the injury is not currently known, but there's some speculation that Anderson dinged up his leg. Consider him questionable to return. Kyle Hicks will handle the bulk of carries so long as the sophomore is sidelined.

Nov 11 - 10:00 PM

TCU redshirt senior RB Kyle Hicks rushed for 41 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries in Saturday's 24-7 win over Texas.

Darius Anderson was the ostensible No. 1 back against the Longhorns, out-carrying Hicks 18-11 and out-rushing him 99 yards to 41 yards. Hicks twice made good in the red zone for scores, though, helping to augment what was otherwise a relatively subdued performance. Injury concerns for the redshirt senior early in the season allowed Anderson an opportunity to carve out an expanded role. The two have worked well in tandem this year.
