Texas A&M may have the lead over South Carolina in its season opener, but the Aggies may have lost a player they were counting on to be a big part of the defense this season.

It looked to be a right leg injury to Hilliard, as the leg was already in a cast while he was carted off the field. Hilliard, who transferred to Texas A&M from TCU, registered a sack of South Carolina quarterback Dylan Thompson prior to leaving the game.
