Texas A&M running back Jay Bradford came to College Station with some good potential, but the Army All-American will be left off the Texas A&M roster this season due to health concerns. The specifics of the health issues preventing Bradford from playing for the Aggies has been undisclosed as the famil has asked for privacy.
“The health and well-being of Jay is the only thing that matters,” Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said Monday, per The Houston Chronicle. “He is still part of our team but just unable to participate in preseason drills. Jay and his family know that they can depend on us through this process.”
Bradford was a three-star recruit in Texas A&M’s Class of 2015. Texas A&M did make note of the unspecified health concern earlier this summer, but this latest chapter of the story would seem to suggest football will not be in the cards for young Bradford this fall. As Sumlin stated though, the most important thing right now is Bradford’s well-being. Football can hopefully come later.
