The Horned Frogs have lost a third starter in the last few days, as tight end Artayvious Lynn’s season is over.
Lynn, a 6’6” senior out of Bossier City, LA, tweeted Tuesday night that he was done for the year:
That wraps up my season— 8️⃣8️⃣ThaGreat (@Taymike88) October 27, 2020
On Wednesday, the news was confirmed when 247 Sports’ Jeremy Clark received information from sources:
Can confirm #TCU tight end Artayvious Lynn is out for the season. Lynn tweeted last night his season was over.— Jeremy Clark (@JClarkHFB247) October 28, 2020
Lynn had started all four games this season, recording six receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown. Additionally, he was in the starting lineup five times in 2019 and three in 2018, and has career marks of 21 receptions for 225 yards and two scores in 32 games. A redshirt senior, Lynn could return to TCU Football in 2021 if he so chose thanks to the NCAA rule that grants all 2020-2021 athletes and extra year of eligibility.
The third starter to be lost to injury following the Oklahoma game, Lynn joins offensive lineman Wes Harris (broken jaw) and cornerback Noah Daniels (unspecified lower body injury) on the IR for the Frogs. Behind Lynn is former walk-on Carter Ware, who is expected to start Saturday at Baylor. Ware grew up in Singapore playing rugby, but excelled at high school football once his family relocated (back) to Texas, joining TCU as a preferred walk-on. The junior has two career receptions for nine yards in 28 games played, and has primarily been used as a blocker — which could be a good thing for for a team that has struggled to protect the passer.
The 1-3 Horned Frogs take on the 1-2 Bears Saturday at 2:30 at McLane Stadium in Waco.
