UTEP QB Showers won't play in return to Texas A&M

Posted: Updated:

EL PASO, Texas (AP) - UTEP quarterback Jameill Showers won't play in his anticipated return to Texas A&M after injuring his right shoulder in a loss to Rice.

Showers lost a battle for the Texas A&M starting job the preseason before Johnny Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy in 2012.

The No. 12 Aggies (6-2) and Miners (1-6) play a nonconference game Saturday night, and Showers said before the season he was looking forward to going back to College Station.

Showers, who will make the trip, backed up Manziel last season before transferring to UTEP.

Miners coach Sean Kugler said Monday he didn't think Showers would play again this season after separating his throwing shoulder when he was sacked in the second quarter of a 45-7 loss to the Owls.
