Kyler Murray will start on Saturday if he's ready to play

The Texas A&M quarterback situation is up in the air again, but according to Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin it’s because of the status of freshman Kyler Murray, who left the game against Auburn with concussion-like symptoms.

“Yesterday was a mental day, be in pads today and see where he is physically and where his status is throughout the week,” Sumlin said. 

Offensive coordinator Jake Spavital said if Murray is ready to go and gets reps in the week, he will start.

Sumlin put the loss primarily on turnovers, saying they left points out on the field there twice with turnovers in the end zone.

“It’s a team statistic," Sumlind said. "It was the first game we didn’t get a turnover in long time. Penalties, we did all right, but that has been story of the season."

A&M lost the turnover battle 3-0 against Auburn. All three games the Aggies have lost, they’ve lost the turnover battle.

When asked the progress his team has made, Sumlin said he wants to wait until the end of the season to judge where the Aggies are as a program. He later added that he liked the idea that almost all of his players, especially key players and stars, will be back next season.
