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).”

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.
