Nick Starkel could be done after sustaining a potential season-ending injury in Texas A&M’s opener. So, where does that leave the Aggies’ quarterback situation?
Coach Kevin Sumlin gave a status update on Tuesday, stating that both senior Jake Hubenak and true freshman Kellen Mond will play quarterback moving forward, according to TexAgs.com.
Sumlin: Jake & Kellen were prepared [after Starkel injury] to play. Both will be ready to go because Nick is not available. Both will play.

Mond replaced Starkel in the season-opening 45-44 loss to UCLA, and the freshman had an abysmal showing. He went 3-for-17, passing for just 27 yards, while rushing for 54 yards on 14 carries.
Sumlin confirmed Tuesday that Hubenak was available to play, but he wanted to have Mond in for those certain situations.
Hubenak has 1,283 passing yards and nine touchdowns over the past two seasons. He threw 884 yards and six touchdowns last year, filling in when Trevor Knight was injured.
The Aggies look for better results — whether that’s with Hubenak or Mond, or both, on the field — this week when they play their home opener against Nicholls State at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday on ESPNU.
