No. 17 K-State loses WR Lockett for season

No. 17 Kansas State will be without freshman wide receiver Tyler

Lockett for the remainder of the season because of an injury.

The team announced the news before Saturday’s game against Texas

A&M. The nature of the injury and when it occurred was not

disclosed.

Lockett is second on the team in receiving with 18 catches for

246 yards and three touchdowns. He had 315 all-purpose yards in

last week’s 52-45 loss to No. 2 Oklahoma State.

Lockett has been most valuable on special teams, where he was

second nationally in kickoff return average at 35.2 yards. He also

is the first player in school history to return kicks for

touchdowns in consecutive games – against Texas Tech and

Kansas.
