Haynes King injury update: Texas A&M QB leaves game for Aggies
Haynes King was replaced by Texas A&M early Saturday afternoon, and the situation didn’t look great.
King, the redshirt freshman who won the Aggies’ starting quarterback job this year, appeared to get injured midway through the first quarter of the game against Colorado at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver. With King apparently hurt, Texas A&M turned to sophomore Zach Calzada.
The FOX broadcast showed King leaving the field with the help of 2 Aggies assistants, as he appeared to be struggling to put pressure on his leg that appeared to be injured.
King had a solid start to 2021, as he passed for 292 yards and 2 touchdowns in Texas A&M’s season-opening 41-10 win over Kent State last Saturday. That was King’s first start of his Aggies career.
It was announced that King would not be getting back on the field on Saturday, and then he was spotted on Texas A&M’s sideline wearing street clothes and on crutches with a boot on his right foot:
