Texas A&M running back Christine Michael out for season


— Texas A&M; running back Christine Michael will miss the rest of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in one of his knees.

The junior was injured in Saturday’s 41-25 loss to No. 7 Oklahoma. He has 899 yards rushing and eight touchdowns this season.

Texas A&M; coach Mike Sherman wasn’t sure which knee was injured, but says they will schedule surgery to repair it in a couple of weeks when the swelling subsides.

It’s the second straight year where Michael has had a season-ending injury after he broke his leg last October.

Sherman expects Cyrus Gray, who has split carries with Michael, to step up with Michael out. Gray has 733 yards rushing with seven touchdowns this season.

That's one of the strangest statements I've ever seen.

The star running back tears his ACL and the Coach doesn't even know which knee it is? Does Michael even know which knee it is? Is their an " ACL tear pool " going in the Aggies locker room and whoever guesses which knee it is first wins it all?

How are they even going to operate if they don't know which knee it is? Just do both of them to be safe?

Them Aggies are strange folk. I'm not going to miss them.

The fact that his name is Christine is even stranger to me.
