Waymon James Out For Season With Knee Injury

Texas Christian University running back Waymon James will miss the remainder of the 2012 season with a knee injury, according to James was TCU's leading rusher through the first two games of the year.

James, a junior from Sherman, Texas, appeared to injure his knee at the end of a 17-yard run midway through the fourth quarter of the Horned Frogs' 20-6 victory over Kansas on Saturday. He missed out on the century mark by one yard, finishing the game with 99 yards on 12 carries.

James averaged 9.9 yards per carry while rushing for 168 yards and a touchdown against Grambling State and Kansas. Matthew Tucker, who has split the carries with James almost down the middle, will likely take over as the primary back for TCU. He has gained 100 yards on 19 carries over the first two games of the season.
