Other recent Horned Frogs to be Walter Camp All-Americans include defensive end Jerry Hughes (2008-09), safety Tejay Johnson (2010), center Jake Kirkpatrick (2010), cornerback Jason Verrett (2012-13) and linebacker Paul Dawson (2014).

Doctson will know next week whether playing is an option or not.

Doctson, a senior from Mansfield, Texas, missed the No. 11 Horned Frogs’ last two games after undergoing surgery on his left wrist last month after injuring it in TCU’s 49-29 loss at Oklahoma State on Nov. 7.

Doctson, a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award as the country’s top receiver, is scheduled to have the cast removed from his left hand by a specialist on Dec. 17. He’ll then have X-rays to see how much his wrist has healed.

Doctson was showing up on Heisman Trophy lists when he injured his wrist in the first half of the Horned Frogs game against Oklahoma State, Nov. 7. He tried to play the next Saturday, but all he could do was serve as a decoy. That’s when coach Gary Patterson announced that Doctson would miss the remaining two regular season games.

The injuries are starting to mount for the Frogs.

Returning to the lineup against Washington was guard Chauncey Collins, who missed a game with a leg injury, but the Frogs still only dressed eight scholarship players. Guard Kenrich Williams is out all season after knee surgery and forward Chris Washburn continues to nurse a broken finger.
