    TCU might play without standout linebacker Robert Henson in the Poinsettia Bowl Tuesday night when No. 11 TCU faces No. 9 Boise State.

    Henson did not practice on Saturday and coach Gary Patterson indicated on Sunday there's a chance Henson won't be on the field against the Broncos.

    When asked if Henson would play Patterson said, "I don't know about that yet, but there isn't anything wrong with him."

    Henson, a senior from Longview, Texas, was a first-team all-Mountain West Conference selection this season, part of a TCU defense that ranked second in the country in total defense. Henson finished the season with 73 tackles and two interceptions in his first full season as a starter.
