K-State coach Bill Snyder played a trick on Baylor during warm-ups. Both Tramaine Thompson and Tyler Lockett fielded punts with K-States special-teams unit and appeared fit to play.
But when the team returned for the opening kickoff Thompson was in sweats and Lockett was holding a clipboard. Neither receiver played. Thompson has missed the last two games for unspecified reasons. Lockett is recovering from a hamstring injury suffered at Oklahoma State.
They were both considered questionable heading into Saturday, but Snyder said he expects both of them to play against West Virginia.
• K-State cornerback Kip Daily left the game and was unable to return after taking a hit that the crowd deemed questionable on Saturday. When asked about the hit, Snyder said his thoughts would be better left unsaid.
• Weston Hieberts blocked punt was K-States first since 2009.
• One NFL scout was in attendance. The Kansas City Chiefs sent the lone representative.
• Quarterback Daniel Sams briefly left the game with a shoulder injury, but returned after receiving treatment in the locker room. Afterward, Sams said he was healthy.
Im a little banged up, he said. But its nothing ice cant fix.
