TCU coach Gary Patterson is still trying to figure out what to do with quarterback Trevone Boykin.
But the Frogs haven’t been without success at the position.
“We are still working on it,” Patterson said Monday after a morning practice at TCU’s stadium.
“I think Trev, he’s a competitor, he works hard.
He knows what he’s doing.
And I think that’s important.”
Boykin was on the field during a timeout after the TCU-Baylor game and was among several TCU players who stood with Boykin as he left the field after the game.
“He’s done a great job of being out there for us,” Patterson told reporters after practice.
“When he comes in, he has a very good feel for the offense.
He understands the scheme.
He’s a guy that can be a real good quarterback.”
TCU coach Terry Bowden said he expects Boykin to play in this season’s opener against Texas A&M, and he hopes Boykin’s injury history doesn’t deter the Frog’s offense.
“Trevon is going to be ready to go,” Bowden told reporters.
“There’s no doubt about that.
But I think he’s going to have a couple of weeks off, then we’re going to take it from there.”
The Frogs’ offense is expected to return from its bye week, but that could mean more time on the practice field.
“What we do will depend on the situation of the rest of the week,” Bowen said.
“If we’re not playing, then I think it’s going be tough for us to be able to have guys in the weight room.
You’ve got to take the heat.” “
But it’s always tough when you’re playing at home.
You’ve got to take the heat.”
Boykins is entering his senior year.
“It’s definitely going to affect his decision,” Bowens said.
