MANHATTAN, Kan. - The Kansas State Wildcats found out that veteran quarterback Skyler Thompson is out the remainder of the season with an "upper-body" injury and will have to lean on true freshman Will Howard at quarterback.

Thompson, who missed the wildcats' 21-14 win over TCU on Saturday, had surgery for "an upper-body injury" head coach Chris Kleiman said. True freshman Will Howard started in Thompson’s place and was 8-of-19 passing with an interception but ran for 86 yards and a touchdown.

The Wildcats (3-1, 3-0 big 12), who are tied for first in the conference standings is idle this week and will return to action on Oct. 24 against rival KU.

A rather potent winter storm is still on track to move into the area late Sunday and last through most of the day on Monday. Initially precipitation may fall as rain or a wintry mix of rain, sleet, or freezing rain, but by late Monday morning all precipitation should switch over to snow. Even before the heavy snow starts area roads within the watch may be slick due to the potential for off and on freezing rain. There will also be a very tight gradient between the highest snowfall amounts across far northern Missouri and very little snow, more toward the Highway 36 corridor and areas south of there.
