It appears that, at least for now, Waymon James is no longer a part of the TCU football team.
Multiple media outlets reported Monday that James is not listed on the Horned Frogs’ roster for their regular-season finale, although he is still included on the the online roster. Head coach Gary Patterson declined to discuss James’ status with the team, although it appears he’s definitely out for Saturday’s game against Baylor.
As James is a senior and TCU won’t be bowl-eligible, James’ career is effectively over.
“I’m just going to talk about the group that’s here,” Patterson said according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “If you want to talk about Baylor, I’m here to talk about Baylor or how the game is going. Waymon is not a subject I’m going to talk about.”
James was suspended Nov. 4 for violating unspecified team rules and has not played the last two games.
This season, James is second amongst TCU running backs with 242 yards and four touchdowns. In 2011, James led the team in rushing.
