Leading Texas A&M receiver Jeff Fuller will miss four to six weeks after cracking the fibula in his right leg, coach Mike Sherman said.

Fuller, a 6-foot-4, 215-pound sophomore, was injured in the first half of the Aggies' 38-30 victory over Utah Sate when he twisted his leg in the grass and did not return.

"It won't change what we do necessarily," Sherman said Monday. "We'll evaluate guys and get some others in there."

Fuller leads A&M with 12 receptions for 136 yards, including 10 in the Aggies' opener against New Mexico.

With his absence, Sherman said freshman Brandal Jackson, Kenric McNeal and junior Terrence McCoy will receive playing time at Fuller's position.

The injury won't significantly increase the number of repetitions that backup quarterback Ryan Tannehill will receive at receiver, Sherman said.

Fuller started eight games for the Aggies last season, catching 50 passes for 630 yards and a team-leading nine TDs.

A&M plays UAB Saturday night at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas.
