This time Doctson really is done for at least the regular season
It turns out reports about Josh Doctson's injury status were a week premature.
On Wednesday, TCU coach Gary Patterson announced that the Horned Frogs' leading receiver will not play in the final two regular-season games due to a left wrist injury. Patterson said the senior could return to play in the bowl game. Meanwhile, quarterback Trevone Boykin (ankle) remains a likely game-day decision.
The Biletnikoff Award semifinalist and All-American candidate injured his wrist two weeks ago during the Oklahoma State loss. Last week during a radio interview, Patterson was apparently misunderstood and misinformation that Doctson would miss the rest of the season quickly spread across the Internet.
Doctson tried to play last week against Kansas and had one catch for 12 yards. He was expected to see a specialist for a second time this week, according to Patterson before ultimately having the wrist "permanently" fixed, as Patterson put it.
Doctson set multiple school records this season, including touchdown catches (14), receiving yards (1,315) and receptions (78). He holds TCU career records for touchdown catches (29) and yards (2,773) and was one catch shy of tying Kelly Blackwell’s record of 181 career catches.
