According to a report from columnist Keith Whitmire, TCU quarterback Casey Pachall will "disenroll" from school and enter an inpatient care facility. 

Pachall was suspended for TCU's game against Iowa State last Saturday after he reportedly was arrested on a charge of driving while intoxicated outside the TCU campus. Coach Gary Patterson said Pachall's suspension was indefinite.

TCU lost to Iowa State, 37-23, last Saturday. Trevone Boykin, Pachall's replacement, threw three interceptions in the Horned Frogs' loss to the Cyclones. 

Whitmire reported that Patterson left the door open for Pachall's return.

From Whitmire's report: 

"He can come back here in January if he gets clean," Patterson said. "Right now he's trying to find where he's at."

Whitmire also reported that Patterson said Pachall is two semesters away from graduating: 

"He sits at enough hours where he would be able to graduate in two semesters, which is the ultimate goal for us. And also we get a great kid and a good quarterback back."
