Texas A&M starting RB Jashaun Corbin out for the season

By Will Leverett

Texas A&M starting running back Jashaun Corbin will miss the remainder of the season with a lower body injury, per multiple reports. 

The sophomore from Rockledge, Fla., suffered a season-ending hamstring injury during a 24-10 loss to No. 1 Clemson on Saturday. Corbin posted 34 yards on 13 carries against the Tigers before getting pulled. 

Corbin rushed for 346 yards and a touchdown on 5.7 yards per carry as a true freshman. He was tabbed as the primary option to replace Trayveon Williams, who rushed for 1,760 yards as a junior before leaving early for the NFL draft. 

Losing Corbin is a big hit for the Texas A&M offense. After Corbin went out, the Aggies turned to true freshman Klein Collins product Isaiah Spiller. He struggled against the Tigers, posting just 24 yards on seven carries, though he had 106 yards in his Aggie debut against Texas State. 

The only other running back to post a carry this season so far is sophomore UCF transfer Cordarrian Richardson. Jacob Kibodi and Deneric Prince could also see time, though neither has any significant college football experience.
