09/12/2013 - With Pachall injury, QB job again is Boykin's...Casey Pachall did not have to return to TCU. After bouncing out of the program last season and entering a treatment program for substance abuse, Pachall could have tried to turn pro. That would have been a challenge, of course, but then so was returning to TCU and trying to quarterback the Horned Frogs again after playing four games last season and then leaving. After an arrest on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, Pachall and the TCU staff determined football was not in his best interest.

Not this season, however. Allowed to return to school for spring classes, Pachall participated in those drills, then competed with Trevone Boykin for the QB job. Named the starter for the first game, Pachall struggled and split time with Boykin. Then, in week two, Pachall fractured his left (non-throwing arm), an injury that will force him to miss eight weeks. - The Sports Xchange

09/12/2013 - With Pachall injury, QB job again is Boykin's...A medical redshirt is an unlikely path for the senior to pursue. "I think he wants to graduate; he wants to go on with his life," TCU coach Gary Patterson said. "I haven't had that conversation with him, but I would think that would be the way he would look at it from his perspective. He wants to get an opportunity to get on to the next level, and I would expect that will probably be what he did."

Pachall is not leaving school at least. Following the injury, which came in a Sept. 7 romp over Southeastern Louisiana, Pachall was quick to return to the football offices and offer any help necessary to Boykin and the other quarterbacks. It is possible he could be available to play for the Horned Frogs late in the season, as well as in a bowl game. - The Sports Xchange

09/08/2013 - TCU QB Pachall out eight weeks...TCU quarterback Casey Pachall could miss at least eight weeks because of a broken arm, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Sunday. Pachall injured his non-throwing left arm during the No. 24 Horned Frogs' 38-17 win over Southeastern Louisiana on Saturday. He had surgery to repair the forearm fracture. He could return in early November. Trevone Boykin will fill in for Pachall. Boykin started nine games last season after Pachall left the team to seek treatment for substance abuse addiction.

Boykin replaced Pachall and played most of the second half in the season opener against LSU and started at wide receiver against Southeastern Louisiana. Boykin caught three passes for 25 yards before replacing Pachall behind center. TCU visits Texas Tech on Thursday. - The Sports Xchange

09/07/2013 - TCU quarterback Casey Pachall has left the game against Southeastern Louisiana with an apparent injury to his left arm or wrist. Pachall was hurt at the end of an 8-yard run late in the second quarter Saturday when he used his left arm to brace for a fall as he was being hit by two defenders. A trainer could be seen checking the area around Pachall's wrist before he walked to the locker room.

Pachall missed most of the 2012 season after getting arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. He was replaced by Trevone Boykin. Pachall and Boykin split time in the TCU's season-opening loss to LSU, but Pachall had taken almost all the snaps before leaving Saturday's game. Boykin came in and led a drive to a field goal on the final play of the half to give TCU a 17-14 lead. - AP Sports

09/07/2013 - TCU quarterback Casey Pachall will miss at least one game after injuring his left forearm in a win over Southeastern Louisiana. TCU won 38-17 on Saturday but coach Gary Patterson said that Pachall's injury was "probably not good." He didn't offer anything more specific besides ruling Pachall out for No. 24 TCU's visit to Texas Tech for its Big 12 opener on Thursday night.

Pachall was injured at the end of an 8-yard run late in the second quarter when the senior used his left arm to brace for a fall as he was being hit by two defenders. Trevone Boykin, who replaced Pachall last year after his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving, came in Saturday with the score tied 14-all and led three straight scoring drives. - AP Sports

08/31/2013 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: QB Casey Pachall will attract more attention than anyone on the TCU roster, whether he starts at quarterback or not in the season opener against LSU. Pachall left school after four games a year ago to receive substance abuse treatment, then was allowed to return. He is a terrific passer who sees the field well and avoids mistakes, which the Horned Frogs made far too often last season when they committed 29 turnovers. Expect Pachall to start over Trevone Boykin, although coach Gary Patterson will not officially name a starter until game time. - The Sports Xchange

08/12/2013 - OTHER TCU PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: QB Casey Pachall (6-4, 226, 4.67)...Although he's likely to earn the starting job back, Pachall's checkered past with substance abuse will hurt his chances of being drafted as high (if at all) as his skills warrant. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

07/31/2013 - Earlier this summer, TCU coach Gary Patterson told CBSSports.com that he was unsure if Casey Pachall would return to the team after his indefinite suspension in October. "I didn't know," Patterson said of Pachall's possible return. "I put it in his hands. The biggest thing was to give him hope and understanding." Casey Pachall spoke to the media for the first time since his October drunk driving arrest. He spent three months at a substance abuse treatment facility and returned to school in January. According to the senior quarterback, the entire experience has changed him for the better. "I've matured a lot," Pachall said. "Everything that's happened, happened for a reason. Everything I did was part of the plan and needed to be done."

Pachall will continue to battle with sophomore quarterback Trevone Boykin for the starting job when fall camp opens Thursday afternoon. The Horned Frogs were 4-0 before Pachall was suspended and Boykin was forced into the starter's role for the remainder of the season. TCU finished the year 7-6, falling to Michigan State in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.

Gary Patterson has been hesitant to give the starting job right back to Pachall, who is scheduled to graduate in December, but few close to the program believe that Boykin will beat him out for the job. Boykin's play was inconsistent -- but not unexpected for a freshman -- a year ago. Pachall's experience gives him an edge in the competition, and Gary Patterson said as much on Wednesday. "It's not going to be one of those where we split 50/50, one is going to be the starting quarterback," Patterson said on Wednesday. "If it's a tie the older guy is going to win [the starting role]." At the time of his arrest and suspension in 2012, Pachall was averaging 9.8 yards per attempt with 10 touchdowns and just one interception. - Chip Patterson, CBSSports.com

07/22/2013 - TCU head coach Gary Patterson knew that Casey Pachall would be a hot topic of discussion Monday. After all, he was voted as the top quarterback in the conference in the preseason media poll despite missing the final nine games of 2012. Pachall is of interest not just because he missed most of last season, but also the reason why. Through four games in 2013, Pachall was among the nation's leaders in just about every passing category, including a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 10-to-1.

In October, he was suspended indefinitely due to an arrest for suspicion of driving while intoxicated and then a few days later he withdrew from school to enter a drug and alcohol treatment facility. Pachall, ranked 13th among 2014 draft quarterback prospects by NFLDraftScout.com, completed his treatment program and re-enrolled at TCU in January, but faces an uphill battle to returning to the top of the mountain.

"A lot of people ask me why I didn't bring Casey to media days," Patterson remarked on Monday. "Number one, we don't know who our starting quarterback is." Sophomore quarterback Trevone Boykin did an admirable job stepping in for Pachall last season, especially considering he had moved to running back prior to the season. But the Horned Frogs managed just three wins in the final nine games in 2012 with Boykin as the starter.

"It won't be a 50-50 thing, I don't think, but I do believe there's a place for both of them," Patterson said. "If it is Casey as the starter, you have Trevone who really can beat you with his legs. He had an unbelievable spring, to be honest with you, which bodes well for us because he's only going to be a sophomore." - The Sports Xchange
