Playing status of A&M's McGee unclear
Texas A&M quarterback Stephen McGee is throwing again after spraining his shoulder, but coach Mike Sherman hasn't decided if he'll play against Miami on Saturday.

McGee was injured early in A&M's game against New Mexico on Sept. 6, and sophomore Jerrod Johnson led the Aggies to a 28-22 victory.

"I'm feeling pretty good,” McGee said Monday. "I'm just looking for improvement every day.”

Sherman said he would see how things go in practice the next couple of days before deciding on McGee's status for Saturday. Even if McGee is healthy, Sherman wouldn't commit to starting him.

He beat out Johnson for the starting job in preseason workouts, but when asked if there was a chance McGee wouldn't start even if he's healthy, Sherman responded: "We'll see about that.”

Johnson was solid in relief of McGee, throwing for 124 yards and three touchdowns.
