Texas A&M WR Evan Stewart has been confirmed out vs. Ole Miss

Amid Texas A&M’s Week 10 road battle vs. the 10th-ranked Ole Miss Rebels on Saturday afternoon, several Aggie starters on defense, including starting cornerbacks Deuce Harmon and Tyreek Chappell, did not dress and were quickly confirmed out before the 11:00 a.m. kickoff.

However, star sophomore wide receiver Evan Stewart, who was not listed as injured during the pre-game announcements, did not appear in the first two offensive drives, which finally led to ESPN sideline reporter Katie George confirming that Stewart is dealing with a lower leg injury, and will not play against the Rebels.

Stewart is second on the team with 37 receptions, 506 receiving yards, and four touchdowns in seven games this season, as the dynamic receiver had only missed one game all year. At the same time, his undisclosed lower-body injury was news to all of us during the broadcast.

In his place, wide receivers Grand Valley State transfer Jahdae Walker and junior Moose Muhammad have replaced Stewart in the lineup alongside Ainias Smith and Noah Thomas.
