Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Collin Klein's status still uncertain

The SportsXchange

The status of Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein for Saturday's game against TCU remains uncertain on Monday as a result of an injury sustained in Saturday's victory over Oklahoma State.

Klein was knocked out of Saturday's game with what appeared to be a head injury, although Kansas State has not confirmed whether Klein sustained a concussion.

Kansas State coach Bill Snyder said on a conference call on Monday that Klein "seems fine to me."

Asked whether Klein will play on Saturday, Snyder said, "I hope so."

Kansas State is No. 2 in this week's BCS standings. Klein leads the nation in pass efficiency and appears to be the Heisman Trophy favorite at the moment.

Klein left Saturday's game after his 1-yard touchdown run gave the Wildcats a 38-17 lead with 9:41 remaining in the third quarter. It appeared he was shaken up on the previous play when he took a hard hit.

Reserve quarterback Daniel Sams played the rest of the way.

Klein never left the field for the locker room during the game, and spent the fourth quarter on the sideline.

Klein did not speak to reporters after the game, and it's unknown whether he underwent any testing for a concussion.

Klein's mother, Kelly, told ESPN's Joe Schad that she saw her son on Sunday, and she said "he looks great and he feels great." She said her son is "going to be 100 percent this week. He will begin a normal film review and normal practice week."

However, Yahoo! Sports reported Klein was being evaluated for a concussion because he could not recall the details of his final drive, and could not recall that he had scored.
