Texas A&M QB Conner Weigman suffered what appeared to be an ankle injury in the first half of the Aggies’ Week 4 contest against the Auburn Tigers.
What Happened to Conner Weigman?
In the second quarter, deep in his team’s own territory, Weigman took a low hit from an Auburn pass rusher and immediately came up favoring his left ankle. He limped to the sideline and eventually went to the locker room and was reported to be yelling in pain. In his stead, LSU transfer addition Max Johnson is set to play.
Weigman, a 6’2″, 215-pound signal-caller, was a five-star recruit out of high school and has been playing extremely well for Texas A&M in the early weeks of the 2023 college football season. Heading into the Auburn game, Weigman had completed over 70% of his passes for 909 yards, eight touchdowns, and just two interceptions.
Having been a 2022 recruit, Weigman is not eligible for the 2024 NFL Draft. But he has the arm talent, athleticism, and competitive toughness to potentially contend for early-round capital in the 2025 NFL Draft. At the moment, however, his status heading into the second half is unclear.
Update: Johnson started the second half for Texas A&M. Weigman is still being evaluated, and will be out for the rest of the game.
