Fearless Champion is still on the mend, and Cody is all set to substitute once again this Saturday when Texas Tech takes on Kansas in Lubbock.

We reached out to Chris Cook, Managing Director, Office of Communications and Marketing at Texas Tech University, who told us that there's currently no timeline for Fearless Champion's return. And while Fearless has been making strides in recovering from a preseason leg injury, it will take some more time for him to get back into tip-top shape.

In the meantime, Cody has been doing a tremendous job leading the Red Raiders onto the field. Of course, we're all still in shock to hear about Cody's background and where he comes from. But just like with football, it's next horse up.

We're glad to see Fearless Champion recovering and hope that he'll be back on the field soon. Judging by the picture below, he's well taken care of. But we're also glad to report that Cody's got this.
