Star RB for Texas A&M Football Exits with Injury
Star RB for Texas A&M football Le’Veon Moss was having a stellar day against the Ole Miss Rebels, continuing to emerge as a top option for the Aggie ground game in this stable of three backs. Moss has had some tough runs on the day, including a touchdown on the ground, but late in the third quarter, he was forced to leave the game with an injury. Moss had an Ole Miss defender draped over his back while he rushed down the field, and a Rebel DB hoping to stymy his progress submarined the Aggie back, delivering what looked like a helmet to Moss’s knee.
Moss, as I said, has been having a good day for the Aggies. He’s been without a doubt the best of the Aggie backs for several weeks now, and his play today testifies to that as well. He actually has the second-highest average among all players who have carried the ball, with a mark of 5.8 (Amari Daniels currently is averaging 6.2 YPC), but he’s notched 52 yards on the ground, the most of any Aggie back.
Moss has also done better in the largely thankless task of pass protection. Max has had good time on several occasions this game, and that’s thanks to a much better job of protection by all involved, including the running backs. Here’s hoping Moss will be able to come back in here soon. We will keep this article updated with any eventualities from the game.
UPDATE: Per Will Johnson on the Texas A&M football radio broadcast, it looks like Le’Veon Moss is done for the day.
