Speedy Noil won't play vs. SMU

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M Aggies freshman receiver Speedy Noil will not play Saturday against SMU because of an unspecified injury, coach Kevin Sumlin said Tuesday.

"He won't play this weekend," Sumlin said.

Noil, a five-star recruit from New Orleans, limped to the sideline and left in a golf cart during the Aggies' 38-10 win over Rice on Saturday.

Sumlin did not disclose why Noil left the field or what will prevent him from playing this weekend.

"I'll update you next week," Sumlin said.

Noil, who also returns punts and kickoffs, leads the No. 6 Aggies with 324 all-purpose yards and is second with 197 receiving yards on 12 catches. He scored his first career touchdown Saturday.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Noil, who enrolled in January, won a starting receiving job during preseason training camp in August. He was ranked as the No. 7 player in the 2014 ESPN 300 and the No. 1 athlete overall.

Sophomore receiver Edward Pope is expected to start in Noil's place vs. SMU.
