Vandy preps for Texas A&M with uncertainty at QB
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Vanderbilt Commodores are waiting for senior quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels to return from his grandfather's funeral so doctors can re-examine his injured leg to see if he can play Saturday against No. 14 Texas A&M.
Coach James Franklin said Monday doctors examined Carta-Samuels both during the game and immediately after a 31-27 win over Georgia. But Carta-Samuels left before another exam could be performed.
Franklin says that's why the Commodores are listing either Carta-Samuels or Patton Robinette at quarterback.
Carta-Samuels hurt his left leg in the second quarter and was using crutches on the sideline in the second half.
Robinette came in and helped the Commodores (4-3, 1-3 Southeastern Conference) rally from a 13-point deficit for Vandy's first upset of a ranked team since 2008.
