During this week’s game against the Auburn Tigers, Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Conner Weigman suffered an ankle injury. While the injury did not seem all that bad initially, it now looks like he will be out for the remainder of the season.

During his press conference on Wednesday, Texas A&M Aggies head coach Jimbo Fisher revealed that after doctors further investigated the quarterback’s apparent ankle sprain, it now looks like his season is over.

“Yeah he is and like I said in the press conference the other day we thought everything was fine,” Fisher said according to On3. “Was having some pain, we X-rayed and MRId it, it didn’t show anything. We thought it was just a normal sprain. He had some pain, he got a CAT scan and it showed some things in there that we’re going to have to fix and go in and get that done, so most likely he’ll be out.”

With Weigman likely done for the year, LSU Tigers transfer quarterback Max Johnson will now step in as the new starting quarterback for Texas A&M. Johnson took over for Weigman after his injury in the game and closed out the victory for the Aggies in his place.
