Texas A&M's Weigman to miss rest of season due to foot injury
Texas A&M quarterback Conner Weigman is expected to miss the remainder of the season with a foot injury, head coach Jimbo Fisher said Wednesday, per ESPN's Dave Wilson.
The sophomore passer sustained a broken bone in his foot during the Aggies' victory over Auburn last Saturday. Initial scans of the foot were thought to be negative, and Fisher labeled Weigman as "day-to-day" earlier in the week. Further evaluations revealed that the 20-year-old suffered a fracture that would require rest to heal.
Weigman was replaced by redshirt sophomore Max Johnson after hobbling off the field before halftime. Johnson completed seven of 11 passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns to secure a 27-10 victory over Auburn. The former LSU transfer will start under center when the Texas A&M plays Arkansas on Saturday.
Weigman passed for 979 yards, eight touchdowns, two interceptions, and rushed for another two scores in four games this season.
