A top SEC program will be without one of its best players after suffering a season-ending injury during Week 2. Texas A&M linebacker Anthony Hines suffered a lower leg injury and will miss the rest of the season as a result.

According to Dallas News, Hines re-injured a lower leg in the team's game against Clemson on Saturday.

The sophomore linebacker re-aggravated the injury on a non-contact play during the loss to the Tigers. It's an unfortunate injury for a promising linebacker that leaves the Aggies thin at the linebacker position.

The team already lost fellow sophomore Ikenna Okeke for the season during August camp.

Hines is a returning starter from 2017 and is one of the team's best defenders. Coming out of high school, Hines was the No. 2 inside linebacker recruit in the country.

Hines was named to the Freshman All-SEC Team after racing up 33 tackles, six tackles for loss, three sacks and a forced fumble in 13 games.
