Ed Orgeron spoke to the media on Monday for his usual weekly press conference.
Orgeron revealed that starting nose tackle Breiden Fehoko is out for the season. He did not provide a time table for return, but Fehoko was rumored to have suffered a torn bicep on Oct. 13 vs. Georgia. Fehoko did, though, play in the Alabama game, which now looks like it may have not been the best idea.
Ed Alexander will be expected to fill in for Fehoko at nose tackle. Fehoko tweeted a picture saying he had a successful surgery on that arm this morning.
Update: Safety John Battle, cornerback Kelvin Joseph and safety Todd Harris are all expected to be “ready to play” on Saturday in College Station. This should give the secondary a boost against Texas A&M.
