TCU redshirt senior WR Ty Slanina (undisclosed) is expected to be available for Saturday's game against Oklahoma State.

Slanina (6'1/193) caught four passes for 24 yards in a season-opening win over Jackson State, but has been sidelined for the past two games. A year ago, the redshirt senior wideout caught 17 passes for 152 yards.

TCU HC Gary Patterson indicated that redshirt senior RB Kyle Hicks (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision at Oklahoma State on Saturday.

Hicks sat out the opener against Jackson State due to an undisclosed injury he suffered in August camp. He had 12 carries two weeks ago against Arkansas, and then ramped it up to 11 carries in the first half over the weekend against SMU before he got "dinged again," per Patterson. Hicks ended up sitting out the second half of that contest. Patterson said Hicks is "closer to playing than not." We'll update you on his status as this situation develops.
Sep 19 - 2:27 PM

According to TCU HC Gary Patterson, redshirt senior RB Kyle Hicks was "dinged again" in Saturday's win over SMU.

Hicks was well on his way to a huge statistical showing against SMU, racking up 84 yards (7.6 YPC) on just 11 carries. All of that came in the first half, but he would not play after halftime due to injury concern. This is not the first time Hicks has struggled with health this season -- he also sat out the opener due to an undisclosed injury suffered in August camp. His status for next Saturday's game against Oklahoma State has not yet been determined, but should he be unable to play, Darius Anderson would start in his place.
Sep 17 - 2:40 PM

TCU sophomore RB Darius Anderson rushed for 89 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries in Saturday's 56-36 win over SMU.

The Horned Frogs look like they've settled into a timeshare at running back, as both Anderson and Kyle Hicks received double-digit totes of the rock (Hicks had 11 carries). For his part, the 5-foot-11, 205-pound Anderson scored both of his touchdowns in the second half, highlighted by a 38-yard scoring scamper in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter. In three games this season, the true sophomore has now rushed for 262 yards and three touchdowns. TCU will head to Stillwater for a showdown with the molten-hot Oklahoma State Cowboys next Saturday.
Sep 16 - 8:01 PM

TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill completed 24-of-30 passes for 365 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 56-36 win over SMU.

Hill had thrown picks in each of the first two games of the season, but he finally came out with a clean performance in helping to down the Mustangs. Three of his four touchdown passes came in the second quarter in what was a fantastically entertaining contest through most of the game. Hill now has a pair of four-touchdown games under his belt this season. If he can avoid the mistakes that plagued him last season, the Horned Frogs could be a frisky-interesting team in the Big 12 this year.

TCU four-star 2018 verbal LB commit Ben Wilson said that he's "100% to [the Horned Frogs]."

Wilson (6'2/215) hails from Sumner, Washington, but told Scout.com that even if the Huskies were to offer to him, he has no plans of shifting off his current TCU pledge. He is currently working to schedule his official visit to the Horned Frogs and plans on officially signing on the dotted line in the new December window for recruits. Scout.com's No. 325 overall prospect brings a relentless physicality to the game when he suits up.

TCU redshirt senior RB Kyle Hicks (undisclosed) rushed for 44 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries in Saturday's 28-7 win over Arkansas.

Hicks sat out TCU's opener against Jackson State due to an undisclosed injury suffered in August camp. In his season debut on Saturday, the 5-foot-10, 210-pounder scored on a four-yard rush midway through the second quarter. Darius Anderson (106 yards, touchdown) led the Horned Frogs in rushing in the victory, but we expect Hicks to receive an increased workload against SMU next weekend now that he looks to be past his early injury concerns.
Sep 9 - 7:03 PM

TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill completed 21-of-35 passes for 166 yards and an interception in Saturday's 28-7 win over Arkansas.

Hill wasn't particularly effective in this one, but with TCU's defense playing lights-out ball, he didn't need to be. Of some troublesome note for the redshirt senior -- he has been picked off in each of the Horned Frogs' games to date. Hill struggled mightily with turnovers last season, when he led the Big 12 with 13 interceptions. TCU currently sits at 2-0, but they'll need Hill to up his game with conference play starting in two weeks.
Sep 9 - 7:00 PM

TCU redshirt senior WR Ty Slanina (undisclosed) is not dressed in advance of Saturday's game against Arkansas.

Slanina played in the opener against Jackson State, catching four passes for 24 yards. TCU should provide an update on his health over the coming days.

Sep 9 - 3:35 PM

TCU HC Gary Patterson said that he "would be surprised" if redshirt senior RB Kyle Hicks (undisclosed) cannot play against Arkansas on Saturday.

Hicks (5'10/210) did not suit up against Jackson State in Week 1, but Patterson said that he was "really close to playing." He's been dealing with an undisclosed injury on-and-off for the past several weeks. His return would be a welcome one for the Horned Frogs, as Hicks rushed for 1,082 yards and 14 touchdowns last season.
Sep 8 - 8:28 PM

TCU sophomore RB Darius Anderson rushed for 67 yards on 13 carries in Saturday's 63-0 win over Jackson State.

Anderson (5'11/205) took lead rushing duties with Kyle Hicks not playing in the game due to an undisclosed injury. The speedster -- he has been timed at 4.39 seconds in the 40-yard dash -- was not running wild on Saturday, posting a long run of 13 yards, but the Horned Frogs did not need any pyrotechnics given the opponent. Hicks could potentially return for next weekend's showdown with Arkansas, but that has yet to be determined. If not, it will be Anderson's show against the Razorbacks.
Sep 3 - 2:09 PM

TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill completed 18-of-23 passes for 206 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 63-0 win over Jackson State.

Hill fired off three of his four touchdown passes in the first half as TCU broke out for a 35-0 halftime lead. He would connect once more in the opening minutes of the third quarter before ceding way to Shawn Robinson for the remainder of the blowout victory. Hill will look to help lead the Horned Frogs to a 2-0 start on the season when they do battle with Arkansas next weekend.
Sep 3 - 1:55 PM

TCU redshirt senior RB Kyle Hicks (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Jackson State.

Horned Frogs HC Gary Patterson put Hicks at "85-90 percent" healthy. An undisclosed injury has had him in-and-out of practice this month. Given the opponent, if there's any concern about Hicks over the next few days, it would make sense for TCU to simply sit him out to be on the safe side. He is the team's most accomplished offensive weapon, having rushed for 1,082 yards and 14 touchdowns during the 2016 campaign. Darius Anderson and Sewo Olonilua would split carries if Hicks can't give it a go on Saturday.
Aug 29 - 9:32 PM

TCU redshirt senior RB Kyle Hicks (undisclosed) might not play in the season-opener against Jackson State.

"He’s still not 100 percent. He may play, may not play. We’re going to see," said HC Gary Patterson. Hicks (5'10/210) has been limited to non-contact work at times during camp due to an undisclosed injury, but this is the first indication that his health might prevent him from suiting up on Saturday. Should Hicks be unable to give it a go, Darius Anderson and Sewo Olonilua would be the two young men who would receive the bulk of work on the ground against Jackson State.
Aug 28 - 2:44 PM

TCU redshirt senior WR Daniel Walsh (undisclosed) has decided to retire.

Walsh (6'2/190) is currently dealing with an undisclosed injury which was expected to keep him out for a substantial amount of time. Rather than fight through to return to the football field, he has instead opted to hang up his cleats. He finishes out his TCU career having caught 15 passes for 162 yards.
