Pachall left in the first half.
TCU quarterback Casey Pachall suffered an arm injury in the first half of Saturday’s game against SE Louisiana and won’t return to the game.
Pachall injured his non-throwing arm after starting 8 of 14 for 100 yards.
Backup Trevone Boykin has plenty of experience after taking over for Pachall last year and played extensively in the opener against LSU.
If Pachall is out for an extended amount of time, TCU’s offense will change slightly, as Pachall is clearly a better passer than Boykin. However, Boykin is the better runner and has improved as a passer since last year.
TCU has a short turnaround for Week 3, as they take on Texas Tech on Thursday night. After the game, coach Gary Patterson indicated Pachall would not play against the Red Raiders. However, it's uncertain how long the senior will be sidelined.
