Jimbo Fisher says Texas A&M wide receiver will miss rest of season, updates other injuries
Texas A&M is starting to play like the team many expected to see in 2021 but injuries remain a concern.
The No. 17 Aggies are hoping to get healthier down the stretch, and on Monday head coach Jimbo Fisher provided some encouraging updates.
During his weekly press conference, Fisher said that standout offensive lineman Kenyon Green is fine after having to leave the Missouri game early last Saturday.
Green was honored Monday as one of the SEC’s players of the week.
Additionally, defensive tackle Jayden Peevy, who missed the game with the Tigers, should be ready for Saturday’s game with South Carolina.
At wide receiver, Fisher said that Caleb Chapman has returned to practice but Hez Jones, who had only played in 1 game this season, will be out for the rest of the year.
Jimbo Fisher says Kenyon Green is fine, Jayden Peevy should be good, Caleb Chapman has been practicing and Hez Jones will have surgery that will end his season.
