Texas A&M quarterback Haynes King is unlikely to return this year after fracturing his ankle during the second game of the season, head coach Jimbo Fisher told Jamie Erdahl of CBS Sports.

King was initially ruled out until at least mid-October, but Fisher doesn't seem optimistic about that return timetable one month into the signal-caller's recovery, Erdahl adds.

After becoming the starter this season following Kellen Mond entering the NFL draft, King completed 62.9% of his pass attempts for 300 yards and two touchdowns against three interceptions before being sidelined.

Zach Calzada took over at quarterback for the Aggies after King's injury, and he's lacked consistency thus far. The sophomore passer entered Saturday's game against Alabama with 744 passing yards, five touchdowns, and four interceptions. He's also completed only 53.4% of his throws.
