Broken hand brings early end to TCU WR Doctson’s spring

If you are going to break your hand, the spring is probably the more ideal season to do so, at least compared to the fall. TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson will miss the remainder of the spring practice season with a broken hand. The injury does not seem to leave head coach Gary Patterson with much concern for Doctson’s status in the fall.

Josh will be good,” Patterson said Friday, per The Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Josh had had good practices. But you can’t catch with a cast on your hand.”

No you cannot. Not that he has much to prove at TCU this spring anyway. Doctson was TCU’s leading receiver in 2014 with 1-,018 receiving yards (8th in the Big 12) and a Big 12-high 11 touchdowns (tied with Kansas State’s Tyler Lockett and Baylor’s Corey Coleman). TCU is starting to get thin in receiver depth this spring. Deante’ Gray will also sit out the remainder of the spring as a result of a non-contact injury and Emanuel Porter hurt a finger.

Doctson reportedly suffered the injury earlier this week and is expected to undergo surgery to repair the broken bone.
