Texas A&M Freshman Ricky Seals-Jones Could be Done for the Year


Highly touted 2013 Texas A&M wide receiver prospect Ricky Seals Jones reportedly could be done for the season following a battle with a knee injury early on this season, according to mySanAntonio.com.

Seals-Jones was considered one of the top overall prospects in the 2013 class and was figured to add another dynamic dimension to this already high-powered Aggie offense. He wowed everyone in the first week of the season with a 71-yard TD catch against Rice. He did not play the next week against Sam Houston State, but saw limited time in this past Saturday’s showdown with Alabama.

On Tuesday night, head coach Kevin Sumlin addressed the situation, including the possibility of Seals-Jones being give a medical redshirt for the rest of this season:

“He was in there a little bit (against Alabama), but his knee is kind of bothering him, and we’re going to do what’s best for him,” Sumlin told host Dave South. “He’s injured and he tried to go a little bit on Saturday and it’s still not right. So we’re looking at it from a medical standpoint … he’s either going to play up to a certain point in time, which is now, or he gets a medical redshirt.
