Jimbo Fisher shares injury updates for multiple offensive players coming out of Arkansas game
Texas A&M’s offensive line is a bit banged up. However, it seems the unit may not be shorthanded again for Saturday’s game against Mississippi State.
While meeting with the media on Monday, Aggies head coach Jimbo Fisher said that graduate offensive lineman Jahmir Johnson will be good to play this week and that sophomore offensive lineman Layden Robinson has returned to practice. Those are both positive developments for Texas A&M moving forward.
Johnson, the starting left tackle, exited this past Saturday’s loss to Arkansas during the third quarter with a knee injury. But it must not have been too serious if Fisher is expecting Johnson to be ready to suit up this week.
Robinson, who is the Aggies’ starting right guard, has missed the past 2 games because of injury. Although Fisher didn’t say if Robinson is ready to play in a game, it’s encouraging that he is getting back out on the practice field at the start of the week.
Fisher also shared that starting wide receivers Chase Lane and Caleb Chapman are both currently day to day due to their injuries. Without this duo, Texas A&M struggled to move the ball through the air against Arkansas, as sophomore quarterback Zach Calzada finished with 151 passing yards.
It’s early in the week, so there should be more injury updates to come as the Aggies get closer to Saturday. That’s when they’ll host Mississippi State at 7 p.m. ET on SEC Network.
