At Tuesday's weekly media press conference, Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin announced that senior starting defensive tackle Kirby Ennis tore his ACL in the Arkansas game and will miss the remainder of the season. The injury effectively ends Ennis' collegiate career.
"Kirby is going to have knee surgery and he will be done for the year," Sumlin said. "He tore his ACL. He's going to get that fixed and that will be it for him."
After sitting out the season opener against Rice, Ennis registered six tackles and one tackle for loss at the nose guard position. His most memorable performance came against Alabama in Tuscaloosa in the monumental 2012 upset. He was expected to anchor a young defensive line in 2013 that has struggled all season.
True freshman Isaiah Golden will start in his place with veteran Ivan Robinson and freshman Hardreck Walker providing depth in the defensive interior.
