Breaking: RB Jashaun Corbin out for the year with hamstring injury
COLLEGE STATION - Texas A&M suffered a 24-10 loss to No.1 Clemson over the weekend. That now is the latter of losses to come from Saturday afternoon.
A&M coach Jimbo Fisher announced at his Monday press conference that running back Jashaun Corbin will miss the remainder of the 2019 season with a hamstring injury. Corbin left in the third quarter against Clemson and did not return.
The sophomore runner was expected to see a majority of the carries following the departure of Trayveon Williams. Last season, Corbin finished third in rushing with 347 yards and one touchdown. The Rockledge product also was named to the SEC All-Freshman Team as a return man.
With Corbin now out, eyes will turn to true freshman Isaiah Spiller to become the lead back to the Aggies' offense. The former Klein Collins player impressed in his debut against Texas State, leading the team in rushing with 106 yards on seven carries.
Against the Tigers, Spiller finished with 24 on seven carries and made two catches for 22 yards. Expected to be the secondary runner, the young back should expect a majority of snaps moving forward for the remainder of the season.
Behind Spiller, sophomore Jacob Kibodi will likely see his role increase. Before being redshirted in 2018, Kibodi rushed for 121 yards and a touchdown on only 11 attempts in 2017.
Corbin will finish the 2019 campaign with 137 yards on 35 carries and one touchdown. This will be the second-biggest loss for A&M's offense this season. Tight end Baylor Cupp was ruled out with an ankle injury during fall camp.
The Aggies will face Lamar at Kyle Field at 6:00 P.M. on Saturday, September 14.
