Texas A&M could be without five-star receiver Ricky Seals-Jones for the rest of the year with a knee injury, according to Brent Zwerneman of the San Antonio Express-News. Coach Kevin Sumlin said on the radio this week that the Aggies are considering using a medical redshirt.
Seals-Jones was considered one of the top-25 recruits in the country in the 2013 class by the 247Sports composite, and was expected to play a significant role in the Aggies' passing scheme this season as a true freshman.
After excelling in the team's opener against Rice with three catches and 84 yards, he did not play in the Aggies' second-week win over Sam Houston State and did not have a reception against Alabama. His 84 yards is still good for fiftth on the Aggies' roster.
That 84-yard total was aided by a 71-yard touchdown catch, and Texas A&M would certainly miss his explosiveness if Seals-Jones has to miss the entirety of the year. He would likely receive a medical redshirt, as he played in less than the required maximum three games.
The Aggies would not be bereft of offensive options -- quarterback Johnny Manziel is the reigning Heisman winner and has Mike Evans, whose receiving yardage totals from the first three games come in at 84, 155, and 279, respectively.
