King was just 1-2 with eight yards before departing, and had one carry for two yards, which might have been the play on which he was hurt. His leg and foot appeared to be a bit jammed up on the tackle.
Backup Zach Calzada is in the game for A&M, who trails 7-0 to Colorado midway through the second quarter.
There’s probably never been a better opportunity for the Aggies to find a path to the College Football Playoff even if they were to lose to Alabama later this season. No. 3 Ohio State just lost by a touchdown at home to the No. 12 Oregon Ducks, and Clemson has already fallen to Georgia on opening weekend.
The Aggies have yet to make the Final Four, a defined goal of coach Jimbo Fisher. But for them to get there, they might need to find some points today in Denver.
