TCU is entering its final stretch of the season suddenly dangerously thin at quarterback. Coach Gary Patterson announced on Tuesday that fifth-year senior and Week 1 starter Alex Delton has left the program. While Max Duggan is firmly entrenched as the starter, he exited last week's 34-27 loss vs. Oklahoma State with an injury to his throwing hand. Patterson has said that Duggan will try to practice this week, and is questionable for Saturday's game against No. 11 Baylor. Also injured is backup Mike Collins.
Per Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, "Delton has grown frustrated with the program. The turning point came Saturday when Duggan exited with an injury on the final offensive drive, and the team turned to Collins instead of Delton."
