QB Hill, top LB Howard among the questionable for No. 11 TCU

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — TCU quarterback Kenny Hill and leading tackler Travin Howard are among several key players that coach Gary Patterson says are “between probable and questionable” for the 11th-ranked Horned Frogs when they play Saturday at Texas Tech.

While not elaborating on the status of Hill or the others, Patterson said Tuesday that highly touted freshman quarterback Shawn Robinson would be ready to play against the Red Raiders.

Safety Niko Small and linebacker Montrel Wilson, who has dealt with injuries all season, are also questionable.

Hill and Howard both took part in postgame interviews Saturday night after the Horned Frogs (8-2, 5-2 Big 12) lost 38-20 at Oklahoma to drop them out of a tie for the conference lead. TCU typically doesn’t have players in postgame if they are injured in a game.

Running back Darius Anderson, the team’s leading rusher, will miss the rest of the season after suffering an unspecific leg injury at Oklahoma.
