QB for Texas A&M Football Heads to Locker Room Before Half
It has been a tough day so far for the offense for this Texas A&M football team. The Aggies have had a really hard time moving the ball due to poorly-timed penalties and drops, and star quarterback Conner Weigman has had trouble settling into a rhythm. Backed up into their own end zone after a strange tripping penalty called by this struggling SEC crew, Weigman sustained a shot from a blitzing Auburn corner that appeared to shake him up. Conner stayed in the ballgame for the next play, but was seen going to the locker room after the Aggie offense failed to convert.
Auburn got the ball back and didn’t move very far, but they bled out the rest of the half with that possession, so no action was seen for Max Johnson, at least so far.
Weigman has been the main driving force behind the (thus far) improved Aggie offense this year. His play has been brilliant, earning him the second spot in QBR in the nation coming into the weekend. It’s hard to fully encapsulate what losing him would mean—and, of course, we’re not sure yet if he’s even done for this game, and are hopeful he can return. If he doesn’t, the defense for Texas A&M football will have to really buckle down big time if the Aggies hope to win what is currently a 6-3 football game. For as bad as the offense has looked so far in the game, losing Weigman could send them into a spiral not only because of a downgrade in talent at the signal caller position, but because of overall morale. Hoping for good news soon.
UPDATE: According to Travis Brown, Texas A&M is “still evaluating” Weigman’s injury. That’s certainly better than him being ruled out, but not entirely encouraging.
