The Horned Frogs will be without top wide receiver Josh Doctson for the remainder of the regular season.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson announced after practice Wednesday that Doctson will not play against Oklahoma or Baylor. Doctson suffered a wrist injury in the first half of the contest against Oklahoma State on Nov. 7 and did not return.

Doctson did return to action against Kansas on Nov. 14, but only made one reception for 12 yards.

Patterson had announced Tuesday that Doctson was questionable and would see a specialist for his wrist.

Doctson led the Frogs this season with 14 touchdown catches and 79 total receptions for 1327 receiving yards. Doctson also became only the second player in the last 20 years to have six straight games with 100 receiving yards and multiple touchdown catches, joining former Texas Tech receiver Michael Crabtree.

Patterson said Doctson may be able to return for a bowl game.

Docston is not the only key player for the Frogs who is injured at the moment. Starting quarterback and Heisman Trophy candidate Trevone Boykin left the game against Kansas and is questionable for Saturday’s contest against the Sooners.

TCU could potentially be without both ends of one of the best quarterback-receiver duos in the nation as they head to Norman this weekend. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. The game will be televised on ABC.
