COLLEGE STATION, Texas — It looks like Texas A&M will be without their QB1 for some time.
According to Sports Illustrated and Matt Zenitz with On3 Sports , after going down in the first quarter of the Aggies' game against Colorado on Saturday, Haynes King was diagnosed with an ankle fracture and will be out until at least mid-October.
The report says King underwent surgery Sunday to fix the fracture.
The injury occurred early in the game after King was stopped short of the first down on third and 6, and thrown to the ground. He was taken to the locker room for further evaluation before reappearing in street clothes, a walking boot and crutches.
King was named the Aggies starting QB by head coach Jimbo Fisher on Aug. 25.
Redshirt sophomore Zach Calzada will step into King's role while he's sidelined.
