MANHATTAN — Kansas State head football coach Bill Snyder said he is hopeful injured quarterback Collin Klein will be available for Saturday's game at Texas Christian in Fort Worth.
The Heisman Trophy candidate was hurt during the third quarter of the No. 3 Wildcats' 44-30 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday night. Snyder did not discuss the nature or severity of the injury, but all indications point toward a possible concussion.
Klein lay on the turf for several seconds after scoring his 50th career rushing touchdown. He spent several minutes talking with trainers before his helmet was taken away, which usually signals that a player has sustained some type of head injury.
Speculation of Klein suffering a wrist injury swirled within Bill Snyder Family Stadium Saturday night after Klein was forced to the sidelines. It is school policy that Kansas State doesn't comment on injuries.
When asked about Klein on Monday, Snyder replied, "Seems fine to me." And when asked whether he'll play against the Horned Frogs, Snyder said, "Hope so."
