Texas A&M head coach Mike Elko spoke with reporters over the weekend and provided an update on quarterback Conner Weigman, who is recovering from a foot injury that ended his season in 2023.

Elko said that Weigman is practicing with the team this spring but is not 100 percent yet. Per On3: quote]“Still battling,” Elko said when asked where Conner Weigman is at from a health standpoint. “He’ll be out there practicing. I don’t think he’s exactly where he’d like to be long-term. Not that he’s behind or anything or hasn’t done what he’s supposed to do or there’s concerns. I just think he would obviously like to be a little bit healthier.”

“He’ll be able to work efficiently as a pocket passer. I don’t know how well he’ll be able to truly run around yet,” Elko said. “He still hasn’t quite been fully out there doing agility work and those types of things.”

“Conner’s going to go into the spring as the No. 1 guy, but we’ve also had two other quarterbacks play very effectively — Jaylen Henderson at the end of the season, and then Marcel Reed in the bowl game,” Elko said. “So like every position across the board, there’s competition this spring, and Conner certainly needs to be out there and be a part of it.”[/quote]
