In a statement via Twitter, TCU’s Biletnikoff-caliber receiver expressed how thankful he is for his time in Fort Worth as it looks like his career as a Horned Frog may have come to an early end.

Coach Gary Patterson told the media after practice on Wednesday that Josh Doctson,”just can’t play with it”, referring to the receiver’s injured wrist. The injury came two weeks ago when the Horned Frogs faced off against Oklahoma State in Stillwater, but Doctson tried to play through the pain last week against Kansas. Though TCU got the win against the Jayhawks, Doctson wasn’t much of a factor as he hauled in just one catch for 12 yards.
Doctson will miss the final two games of the season against Oklahoma and in-state bitter rival Baylor, but coach Patterson stopped just short of ruling him out of a Bowl game.
For the senior with the Frog’s single-season touchdown record, it’s an unfortunate end to his time in Fort Worth.
As far as Doctson’s partner in crime goes, Heisman candidate Trevone Boykin is still questionable for a return to the field against Oklahoma on Saturday after being injured in the game against Kansas.
