Texas A&M’s path to victory over Ole Miss just got a little more difficult.
Aggies safety Armani Watts left the game in the second quarter with what looked like a knee injury.
Watts went down to the ground after trying to make a tackle as Ole Miss drove toward the end zone near the end of the first quarter. He then went over to the trainers table. From SEC Network sideline reporter Kaylee Hartung:
“From the table he gave folks hope as he walked over to the (recumbent) bike, but then grabbed his hamstring after paying so much attention to his knee”
Watts was then helped to the locker room with his arms around two trainers as he walked and struggled to put weight on his left leg. He was taken into the Texas A&M facility for further evaluation, according to Hartung.
Watts entered this week with 56 total tackles including 6 for loss and 2 interceptions, 3 passes defended and 2 forced fumbles. The junior finished last season ranked second in the SEC in total tackles with 126.
