Jimbo Fisher announces Texas A&M receiver will be out for the season due to injury
Tough news from College Station as one of the breakout performers from Texas A&M’s big upset win over Florida is expected to miss the rest of the season due to injury.
Jimbo Fisher confirmed on Monday that redshirt sophomore receiver Caleb Chapman suffered a season-ending injury against the Gators. Chapman played in 11 games during the 2019 season.
Chapman led the Aggies with nine catches for 151 yards and two touchdowns against the Gators. The receiver was injured during his 51-yard touchdown reception with 4:30 remaining in the game.
He suffered a lower-body injury during the play and had to be helped off the field.
The sophomore was the team’s second-leading receiver with 14 catches for 197 yards and three touchdowns during the 2020 season.
Aside from the misfortune of losing a talented young player, Texas A&M has already lost several receivers for the season as senior Jhamon Ausbon opted out and Camron Buckley was lost for the season due to injury during training camp.
