Texas A&M quarterback Conner Weigman will miss the remainder of the 2023 season due to a foot injury he suffered in the Aggies’ win over Auburn, TexAgs Billy Luicci first reported Wednesday morning.
The Aggies travel to Knoxville to face Tennessee in mid October after the Vols host South Carolina and have an open date. Texas A&M plays Arkansas in Dallas this weekend and plays Alabama in Tuscaloosa in two weeks before facing the Vols inside Neyland Stadium.
Weigman is in his first full season as Texas A&M’s starter after playing sparingly as a true freshman last season. The 6-foot-3 signal caller had been one of the SEC’s top quarterbacks through the first four weeks of the season. Weigman completed 69% of his passes through 3.5 games for 979 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions.

Under new offensive coordinator Bobby Petrino, Weigman found his rhythm. In the Aggies loss at Miami, Weigman completed 31-of-53 passes for 336 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.
Former LSU transfer Max Johnson replaces Weigman as the Aggies’ starting quarterback for the rest of the season. Johnson has played meaningful snaps at both LSU and Texas A&M— most notably in 2021 at LSU. Johnson completed 60% of his passes for 2,815 yards, 27 touchdowns and six interceptions during the 2021 campaign.
Johnson also performed well in the second half against Auburn last week. The Aggies’ offense had struggled before Weigman’s injury and the left-handed Johnson quickly led consecutive touchdown drives. Johnson completed seven-of-11 passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns.
Texas A&M travels to Neyland Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 14. The kickoff time and broadcast details have yet to be announced.
