Third year from Texas A&M Caleb Chapman so far he has spent his time on campus. The former four-star promising receiver from Friendswood Clear Brook has finally seen his time to shine with Aggies this year. After marking his first landing of his career on the opening team, the 6-foot, 1
Chapman finished with nine catches for 151 yards and two touchdowns. The second catch result was 51 yards and he finished the game late. As a result, Aggies managed to score a winning goal in the field with the expiration of the time on the next drive. Unfortunately, there was bad news for Chapman after the game.
On Sunday, the receiver posted on social media: “Without low values, the peaks mean nothing. The rebound will be scary. I’ll see you then.” In addition, his mother posted on her profile that her son had “broken his ACL and was ready for the season. The meniscus was [intact]which will make a faster recovery this time. “
When a head coach Jimbo Fisher meeting with the media for his weekly teleconference on Monday afternoon, he confirmed the injury of Aggies’ second lead receiver. Fisher said Chapman was done for the year.
“He has an injury. He will probably be gone for the rest of the year,” Fisher told Zoom in a teleconference.

Chapman arrived in Aggieland in the 2018 class and appeared in two games before an injury forced him to take a red shirt. In 2019, he was still recovering a little from the injury. However, he played in 11 games and even started against Texas State in the opening. He had one catch during the year against UTSA for six yards.
In 2020, however, Chapman had a very strong fall camp and saw that some veteran receivers had been removed from the depth chart due to injury and failure. This opened the door for him to make a great contribution this year. After winning the opener against Vanderbilt, he caught four passes for 40 yards and a touchdown. He had a lone catch for six yards against Alabama before his breakthrough performance against Florida, when he had his second start of the season. Chapman finished with 14 catches for 197 yards and three touchdowns.
Number 11 Texas A&M (2-1) is set to face Mississippi (1-2) this weekend. With the Bulldogs, who now run Air Raid, the offense may need to score a lot of points to take the win. With Chapman out, Jalen Preston is liklely the next person up. Hezekiah Jones is another player who can see the action on the spot if he is cleared after missing the first three games with an injury, while the real freshman with five stars Demon Demas he could see more clicks.
“Maybe not,” Fisher said of Jones’ return next weekend. “It’s everyday. Very close.”
“We’ll see. We’ll have a lot of ways to do that and a lot of groups of people in the way we play,” Fisher added of who will play Chapman. “We will solve this as the week progresses.”
Initial nickel Eric Young missed the game in Florida after being injured against Alabama. Earlier, Fisher had said the sophomore was “week to week,” but changed that, but on Monday.
“We’ll say it’s a daily basis,” Fisher told Young. “He’s getting much better. We’ll have to see each other every day.”
Aggies and Bulldogs face off at 3pm this following Saturday. The game will be broadcast nationally on the SEC network and will also be available through the ESPN application. Texas A&M is currently the favorite of 6.5 points in the road game.
