Texas A&M loses TE Cupp to broken ankle

Texas A&M freshman tight end Baylor Cupp is out indefinitely following surgery to repair a broken left ankle.

Aggies coach Jimbo Fisher said Cupp sustained the injury in a scrimmage Monday and had the operation the following day, but he declined to give a timetable for his return.

“Baylor will be out for a while,” Fisher told reporters. “He had a plate put on his ankle and tibia on the lower part of his leg. … Just got rolled up on.”

Cupp was the No. 1-ranked tight end in the country, the No. 8 player at any position in Texas and No. 53 overall in the 2019 recruiting class, according to the 247Sports Composite.

He caught five passes for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Texas A&M spring game.

At 6-foot-6 and 240 pounds, Cupp was seen as a potential replacement for All-American Jace Sternberger, the Green Bay Packers’ 2019 third-round draft pick.
