Texas A&M will be without its top defensive playmaker in its nonconference tilt with New Mexico State on Saturday.
According to a report from Rivals.com’s Mark Passwaters, Aggies defensive end Myles Garrett will sit out the game.
Myles Garrett and Priest Willis are OUT for #TAMU.

Garrett, who is expected to be one of the top picks in the 2017 NFL Draft, played at less that 100 percent against Alabama on Oct. 22. He registered seven total tackles in the 33-14 loss in Tuscaloosa.
Garrett missed a game against South Carolina earlier in the season. He suffered a high ankle sprain against Arkansas on Sept. 24.
This likely is a move to give Garrett a chance to heal for the remainder of the season, as the Aggies are extremly heavy favorites against New Mexico State.
