Collin Klein’s injury status is still a mystery

Dr. Saturday

Kansas State has never been one to divulge injury updates, it's just not coach Bill Snyder's style.

So, when Snyder was asked Monday about quarterback Collin Klein, he decided to bob-and-weave.

"Hope so," Snyder said when asked whether Klein would play. "I hope they all play."

Klein left Saturday's game against Oklahoma State in the third quarter and didn't return. But on the sideline, he didn't appear injured. He was talking with teammates and spent the entire time roaming the sideline. If Klein had a serious injury, he didn't show it.

Still, Snyder said after the game that an injury was the reason Klein was forced out of the game.

"He obviously was injured, or we wouldn't have taken him out," Snyder said after the game.

Since Klein was walking the sideline without his helmet, Snyder was asked whether Klein's injury was a concussion.

"He's had his helmet off before, maybe they're uncomfortable," Snyder said.

So, what we were all left with was no more knowledge about Klein's injury than there was when he was injured. But for those looking for a clue about Klein's playing status against TCU this week, he is listed as the starter on Kansas State's game notes.
