Texas A&M's loss to Mississippi State on Saturday took the Aggies out of the College Football Playoff hunt. Now, the Aggies have bigger problems with quarterback Trevor Knight out for the rest of the regular season after suffering a shoulder injury against the Bulldogs.

Coach Kevin Sumlin told reporters on Tuesday that Knight could potentially return for the Aggies' bowl game if his recovery goes well.

Knight left the game after a hit late in the second quarter where he landed on his right shoulder and when he returned to the sidelines for the second half, he was in a sling. Jake Hubenak took over for Knight, completing 11-of-17 passes for 222 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

The graduate transfer from Oklahoma had led the Aggies to a 7-1 record before suffering the injury in the Mississippi State game that eventually ended in a loss. On the season, Knight had 1,911 yards passing with 13 touchdowns and six interceptions, and added 583 yards and 10 touchdowns rushing.

Texas A&M is 7-2 currently and closes its season with games against Ole Miss, UTSA and LSU at home.
