TCU standout running back Kendre Miller is questionable to play in the College Football Playoff title game because of a knee injury, head coach Sonny Dykes said Tuesday.

Miller sustained the injury in the Horned Frogs’ 51-45 win over Michigan in the Fiesta Bowl on New Year’s Eve. The first-team All-Big 12 selection had eight carries for 57 yards before leaving the national semifinal game.

“We’re hopeful we’ll get Kendre back,” Dykes said, per The Athletic. “As the week progresses, we’ll know a little bit more every single day. Right now, I’d say he’s questionable and then we’ll try to make a determination as we get through the week.”

Miller ran for 1,399 yards and 17 touchdowns for TCU in 14 games played to lead the Horned Frogs in rushing this season. Behind him were Emari Demercado (622 yards, six TDs) and quarterback Max Duggan (461 yards, eight TDs).

The national championship game pits TCU (13-1) against defending champion Georgia (14-0). It will be played Monday in Inglewood, Calif.
