Reports: Texas A&M QB Haynes King (ankle) out multiple weeks

Texas A&M quarterback Haynes King will miss the next several weeks following surgery to repair a fractured ankle suffered Saturday against Colorado, according to multiple reports.

King fractured his right ankle in the first quarter of the Aggies’ 10-7 win in Denver and was later seen on the sideline in a walking boot and on crutches.

He had surgery Sunday and will be out until at least mid-October, per the reports.

That means he will more than likely miss A&M’s clash with No. 1 Alabama on Oct. 9 in College Station.

King, a redshirt freshman, is 22 of 35 for 300 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions this season.

Sophomore Zach Calzada will start in King’s place.

Calzada was 18-for-38 in relief of King against the Buffaloes. He threw the game-winning touchdown with 2:38 remaining.

QB Kellen Mond leaving Texas A&M for NFL

Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond is entering the 2021 NFL Draft.

Mond said Thursday that discussions with family helped him decide he was ready to play professionally.

“I’m looking forward to the new chapter in my life and have the 12th Man behind me every step of the way,” Mond said in a statement released by Texas A&M and posted to Twitter.

Mond, a redshirt senior, will graduate this year. He returned to Texas A&M for 2020 with a stated goal to “improve myself.”

Mond had 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 2019 and spent down time during the COVID-19 pandemic “watching every single play I ran my junior year.”

In 2020, Mond had 19 touchdowns and three interceptions.

He leaves as the school’s all-time leader in total offense, passing yards, passing touchdowns, completions and attempts.
