TCU QB Duggan out due to undisclosed health condition

TCU might need to revise its quarterback plans, as rising sophomore Max Duggan is unavailable indefinitely due to an undisclosed health condition.

The news came Thursday from coach Gary Patterson, who spoke with reporters on a Zoom call.

“Max has a condition that he’s had his whole life and we caught it,” Patterson said. “Right now he’s in a good place and hopefully he’ll be getting back sometime during the season. …

“It’s a thing he was born with and I’m just glad we found it; I can say that.”

As for the Horned Frogs’ status under center, Patterson said, “Right now we’ll be going forward with the rest of the quarterbacks.”

Sophomore Matthew Downing, who transferred from Georgia a year ago, and junior Stephon Brown, who transferred from Independence (Kan.) Community College, figure to be TCU’s top options if Duggan is out. Neither has competed for the Horned Frogs.

Duggan made 10 starts in 12 games last year, setting TCU freshman records for passing yards (2,077) and touchdown passes (15). He completed 53.4 percent of his passes and added 555 rushing yards and six scores on the ground, but he was sacked 25 times.
