Collin Klein injury: Kansas State QB might be out vs. TCU

The Kansas State WIldcats continue to defeat one ranked opponent after another in a magical season that has the Big 12 leaders dreaming of a national title. For now, however, they hope to have their quarterback and leader, Collin Klein, back in time for next week after he left their victory over Oklahoma State with an undisclosed injury. \

"Obviously he was injured or we wouldn't have taken him out," Snyder said while also noting that he was questionable for next week against TCU.

The Heisman Trophy candidate left during the third quarter of K-State's 44-30 victory over the Cowboys, and it's clear that they are not the same offense without him. Despite a solid, efficient performance from Daniel Sams, the team's second string quarterback, the Wildcats offense stalled and settled for field goals after Klein's exit.

"I thought Daniel did reasonably well," said Snyder. "He did not make any major mistakes, he ran out of bounds one time when we were trying to run the clock out. He does not have that figured out yet. Aside from that, he managed the game OK. He had Chris (Harper) on a deep ball in the end zone that he did not get up in the air enough, but aside from that I thought he played well."
