Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett, a freshman All-American from Arlington Martin who led the Aggies in sacks last season (11.5), is scheduled for surgery today on his thumb and wrist, based on a post from Garrett’s Twitter account (@Myles_Garrett15).
In a Monday night post, Garrett wrote:
“Surgery on Tuesday! Please pray for me!” Garrett followed up with posts explaining the procedure would be on his “thumb/wrist” to repair an injury that occurred Oct. 4, when he “Tore ligaments in my hand against (Mississippi State).”
Never miss a local story.
Garrett, who set an SEC sack record for freshmen, missed only one game during his freshman season (Nov. 15 against Missouri), when A&M officials declared him out with an undisclosed injury. It is unknown how the procedure will impact Garrett’s availability for A&M’s upcoming spring drills under new defensive coordinator John Chavis.
