Texas A&M Football wide receiver Caleb Chapman will miss the entirety of spring ball
Aggies wide receiver Caleb Chapman has had an interesting career with Texas A&M. After hardly playing in his first year with the team, he would immediately break out in his second season.
As soon as the first game of the year, Kellen Mond made it clear that he would be targeting Chapman all season long. Chapman only finished the game with four catches for 40 yards, but he would manage to pull in a touchdown on the way.
He seemingly came out of nowhere but made it clear that he could bring steady production to a receiving core that was completely overhauled in the off-season. He would have a quiet game in the next outing against Alabama in a brutal loss, only managing to pull in a single catch for 6 yards.
After this though, we’d see him shine once again. In Texas A&M’s big win over Florida, Chapman would show up as the star of the game and officially announce his presence in College Station. He was all over the field and would finish the day with 9 receptions for 151 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
In bitter-sweet fashion, he would score the game-tying touchdown in the 4th quarter, falling to the ground while grasping his knee after a slightly underthrown ball by Mond. The player who had just broken out would see his season end.
It’s unclear whether he’s still recovering or if the team is just being cautious, but Chapman will miss spring football this year as he recovers from injury.
