DJ Hogg out for season with foot injury


On Thursday afternoon, Texas A&M announced that sophomore wing DJ Hogg will miss the remainder of the season due to a foot injury.

“DJ has tried to play through the pain during the last four games, but after consulting with the A&M medical staff, DJ and his family decided to focus on his rehab and recovery for next season,” Texas A&M head coach Billy Kennedy said in a statement issued by the athletic department.

According to the release, Hogg initially injured his foot on Jan. 21 in a win over Georgia. That caused him to miss back-to-back contests. He has since returned to the lineup, but has been limited.

Hogg ended his 2016-17 campaign averaging 12.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. The Aggies have six regular season games remaining.
