Despite some confusion regarding his status Tuesday afternoon on the Internet, TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin practiced with the team today. His status with the team remains unchanged as TCU prepares for its next game. Earlier in the day it was reported Boykin had undergone surgery on his wrist and recovery would keep him out for anywhere between four and six weeks. This turned out to be a report based on some bad information.
Boykin is one of the top offensive players in the Big 12 this season, and he has put on a great show the past couple of weeks against Oklahoma and Baylor. Boykin has thrown for 1,463 yards and 11 touchdowns, easily putting him on pace for career highs in each category. In his efforts against the preseason Big 12 favorites, Oklahoma and Baylor, Boykin passed for 605 yards and three touchdowns with just one interception. His completion percentage has dipped significantly in those games, but his impact on the offense is clear.
TCU plays Oklahoma State this week after letting one get away from them at Baylor on Saturday. If, for whatever reason, Boykin is unavailable at any point for TCU, it would be likely Matt Joeckel gets a shot to run the offense. The former Texas A&M quarterback transferred to TCU and has appeared in two games this season.
