Vandy coach says senior QB was at practice early

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt coach James Franklin says he hasn't made a decision yet on a starting quarterback Saturday against No. 14 Texas A&M.

Franklin said Wednesday night that senior Austyn Carta-Samuels was out at practice early before being sent in to have some things handled. Patton Robinette took the majority of work in practice.

Carta-Samuels hurt his left leg in the second quarter of last week's win over then-No. 15 Georgia and watched the second half using crutches.

Franklin says they have an experienced quarterback who's played a lot of games at Vanderbilt (4-3, 1-3 Southeastern Conference) wants to give him every opportunity to play. Franklin says he's not trying to avoid questions but just doesn't have information at this point.
