The No. 1 tight end in the 2019 recruiting class suffered a devastating injury in camp this week.
Texas A&M tight end Baylor Cupp suffered a broken leg, Aggies head coach Jimbo Fisher confirmed on Tuesday night.
It’s a massive blow to the offense, where Cupp figured to be one of the biggest instant-impact players in the country.
Fisher said Cupp “will be out for a while,” but when describing his injury, it looks to be season-ending.
The head coach revealed Cupp go rolled up on and needed a plate put into his ankle to stabilize the injury.
“He had a plate put on his ankle, tibia, on the lower part of his leg,” Fisher said to the Dallas Morning News. “He’ll be out for a while. Just got rolled up on. That was the only major injury we had in the scrimmage. …
“Baylor was playing really good football. He was actually having a really good scrimmage, doing a really nice job. We hate to see that, but he’ll get healed up and get back. He’s still going to be one heck of a player and he was having a heck of a camp.”
Cupp was the No. 1 tight end recruit in the country. He was expected to play a significant role in the offense after the Aggies lost Jace Sternberger to the 2019 NFL draft.
