Aggies WR Ainias Smith OUT For Remainder of New Mexico Game

Aggies wideout Ainias Smith will miss the remainder of the New Mexico game with an injury

Texas A&M will be without star-wideout Ainias Smith for the remainder of the team's game vs. the New Mexico Lobos due to a concussion Smith suffered in the second quarter of Saturday's game.

Smith suffered the injury following a 50-yard punt return that would be called back after a review that showed Smith's elbow on the ground at the spot of the catch. 

It was the second big punt return of the game from Smith to be called by for the Aggies after a holding call reversed what would have been a touchdown in the first quarter.

In place of Smith, Moose Muhammed was inserted into the lineup at both punt return and as a receiver, and thrived, scoring on a touchdown pass from Zach Calzada in the third quarter to give the Aggies a commanding 34-0 lead.
