New Mexico State quarterback Chase Holbrook suffered a blow to the head in the Aggie loss to Hawaii on Saturday and was forced out of the game.
Aggie coach Hal Mumme said that Holbrook's status was uncertain and that he was not guaranteed to play this week when the team hosts Nevada on Friday. Mumme said it was unknown if Holbrook had suffered a concussion.
If not, freshman J.J. McDermott will get the start. The Aggies will be working on a short week, with the game being played Friday evening on ESPN.
