Kansas State Wildcats quarterback Collin Klein is one of the leading candidates in the race for the 2012 Heisman Trophy but his chances to win the prestigious award could take a hit this Saturday.
After suffering an injury in the Wildcats’ 44-30 win over the Oklahoma State Cowboys last Saturday, Klein suffered an injury that could potentially keep him out of Kansas State’s upcoming match up against the TCU Horned Frogs this weekend. The exact injury suffered by Klein and the extent of the injury is unknown. The same can be said about his status for the game.
When Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder was asked if Klein will be available for the TCU game, he answered, “He seems fine to me. I hope so”
Snyder was then asked by a reporter, “Do you know so?”
To which he again responded, “I hope so.”
If Klein is unable to play against TCU, freshman signal-caller Daniel Sams would likely get the start. Sams filled in for the injured Klein last week and threw for 45 yards while gaining twenty rushing yards on seven carries.
Kansas State would love to have Klein going in to their face off with TCU, but at this point, it doesn’t seem that the team is confident in their starting quarterback’s availability for the game.
