Kenny Hill is back at practice for TCU ahead of the matchup with Georgia in the Liberty Bowl.
The injured quarterback was back on the field Tuesday for the first time since the Horned Frogs’ season finale, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Carlos Mendez. His status for the bowl game against the Bulldogs remains uncertain.
“He’s back,” TCU head coach Gary Patterson said. “He missed about the first half of practices, and he’s been back a little bit. We’ll find out. He’s been running around.”
Hill left TCU’s last game against Kansas State with a foot injury in the fourth quarter. He didn’t start that game due to an injury he suffered against Texas the week before. However, he came in during the second half after backup Foster Sawyer led TCU to just 3 points before halftime.
If Hill is unavailable against Georgia, Sawyer will likely get the start. Patterson also said the team’s other quarterbacks are getting more practice reps.
Hill has completed 60.8 percent of his passes this season for 3,062 yards with 15 touchdowns and a Big 12-leading 13 interceptions. He has also run for 537 yards and 9 touchdowns. Sawyer has completed 47.3 percent of his passes this season for 278 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
