Texas A&M Football Down Another QB; Henderson Carted Off With Arm Injury

A scary scene ensured for Texas A&M football after just one play for the Aggies in their game versus Oklahoma State. Jaylen Henderson, rolling out to his left, made a completion to Jahdae Walker on the first play of the game. He fell awkwardly on his arm , and the trainers immediately came out.

The cart came out before much time had elapsed, showing just how bad the trainers immediately knew this injury was. A replay showed Henderson getting his arm caught up behind him as he was upended, and he fell right on top of it, causing it to—at least appear—to break.

He ended up not needing the cart, but an air cast was still applied to his arm as quickly as they could bring it out. Yet another injury for Texas A&M football in a season, or more accuratly a three season stretch, where they have been unnaturally bit by the injury bug.

Hopefully Henderson is okay. The official word came down on the radio broadcast that it was a broken arm, but even without that I would have found it exceeding difficult to believe that he would be able to return to this game after what we saw.

The Aggies now turn to Marcel Reed, who even in the very injured state of the quarterback room, saw minimal time at the signal caller position in any games. Reed so far in the game has made a couple of impressive passes, and is clearly quite quick, but behind him the Aggies have only walk-on Blake Bost. Can the Aggies make it out of this game without yet another quarterback injury? The Maroon and White faithful sure hope so. For now, though, prayers up for Henderson.
