Texas A&M Football’s tight end will miss spring ball due to strange circumstances
To recap so far, the reasons for players missing spring ball are as follows:
- Arrested for possession of a minuscule amount of cannabis
- Injured on a game-saving touchdown catch
Somehow, Jalen Wydermyer outdid both of these players when it comes to his reasoning for missing Texas A&M Football spring practice.
In an extremely unclear series of events, it was announced by the Texas A&M Football team that Jalen Wydermyer would not be playing spring ball due to a “freak off-the-field accident” that saw him injure a tendon in his hand.
It’s still unclear what exactly caused the injury in his hand, but he should be good to go come fall ball. Here’s what Jimbo Fisher had to say about the injury.
"“It’s all fine,” Jimbo said. “It’s got to get stretched out. He can’t take any hits or anything on it.”"
It can be hard to read Jimbo Fisher, but if he’s being transparent, it seems like there’s nothing to worry about for the tight end in the long-term future.
The Aggies will hope to see him back on the field at peak performance, as he has been one of the most consistent players on this team over the past couple of seasons. In his past two years, he has accumulated 963 yards and 12 touchdowns, bringing home All-SEC honors along the way.
He’ll be a huge target for whoever wins the quarterback competition, so getting him back to good health should be a top priority for this team. The relationship between himself and his quarterback will be hugely important for this team’s offensive success.
