TCU Leading Rusher James Out For Season

FORT WORTH (September 19, 2012) -- TCU leading rusher Waymon James will miss the rest of the season for the 17th-ranked Horned Frogs because of a knee injury.

School spokesman Mark Cohen said Wednesday that James has a season-ending injury.

James, who appeared to get hurt in the fourth quarter of Saturday's win in Kansas, was averaging 9.9 yards on his 17 carries. He had 168 yards and a touchdown for TCU (2-0).

When asked Tuesday, coach Gary Patterson said James would be a game-time decision for Saturday's home game against Virginia. He didn't elaborate then.

With James and Matthew Tucker, TCU came into this season as one of only five FBS schools returning a pair of 700-yard rushers.

Tucker has 19 carries for 100 yards and a score, the 27th of his career.
