Texas A&M Quarterback Ruled Out Against Alabama
Texas A&M quarterback Max Johnson is officially ruled out for Saturday's game against the Crimson Tide.
"I am told Texas A&M QB, Max Johnson has a broken bone in his throwing hand. Sadly, he might be done for the season - at the least the foreseeable future," tweeted ESPN Radio's Ian Fitzsimmons.
The junior exited the Aggies game against Mississippi State with a thumb injury in the fourth quarter on Saturday night.
"We're going day-to-day with him, each and every day. I'm sure it'll get better each day, hopefully," said Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher on Johnson on Tuesday.
The transfer from LSU is 43-of-71 for 517 yards and three touchdowns thus far this season. He also has 29 rushing attempts for 58 yards.
Sophomore Haynes King will be the starter on Saturday night for Texas A&M. This year, King is 39-of-64 for 510 yards, three touchdowns, and four interceptions. He also has 16 rush attempts for 66 yards and a touchdown.
The Texas native started the season as the starting quarterback but was benched two games into the season after the Aggies' 17-14 loss to Appalachian State.
The No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide hosts the Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday, October 8, 2022, at 7 p.m. CT. Radio coverage can be found on Tide 100.9 and 95.3 The Bear.
