While the door’s not completely closed on a return for Casey Pachall this weekend, it’s only slightly ajar.
Officially, Gary Patterson said Tuesday, the quarterback is doubtful for Saturday’s game against Texas. Patterson wouldn’t go s far, however, to completely rule the senior out.
Pachall has been sidelined since breaking his left (non-throwing) arm in three different places in a Sept. 7 win over Southeastern Louisiana. He was cleared to resume practicing last week and had been working as the scout team quarterback.
The Horned Frogs have gone 2-3 since Pachall’s injury, including a 1-3 mark in Big 12 play. Their only win in conference play came in Week 6 against two-win Kansas.
