On the eve before Texas A&M (3-2) takes on the Alabama Crimson Tide (5-0) in one of the biggest games of the year so far,
The Aggies are looking to put their 42-24 loss to Mississippi State to bed once and for all, while facing a No.1 ranked Tide team for a second consecutive season.
Aggies Wire has provided copious amounts of pre-game analysis to satisfy even the most dedicated Aggie fan,
so what’s left you may ask? The final injury report ahead of Saturday’s prime-time showdown.
On Monday, head coach Jimbo Fisher discussed the team’s current injury status at the start of the week,
headlined by quarterback Max Johnson’s throwing hand injury in the second half against Mississippi State.
More information came out later in the week, as Ian Fitzsimmons of ESPN Radio in Dallas revealed that
Johnson broke a bone in his throwing hand, indefinitely sidelining him for multiple weeks, and potentially ending his season
in the process. redshirt sophomore quarterback Haynes King is expected to start for the Aggies on Saturday night.
Tyreek Chappell, and left tackle Trey Zuhn are all questionable to doubtful going into Saturday,
while linebacker Andre White Jr., guard Jordan Spasojevic-Moko and defensive end Tunmise Adeleye remain out.
On the Alabama side, the news came out on Friday afternoon that starting quarterback Bryce Young is listed as OUT
for Saturday’s game, while sophomore quarterback Jalen Milroe will make his first career start for the Crimson Tide.
