A&M's Khris Middleton out 3-4 weeks with knee injury

On Friday, Texas A&M forward Khris Middleton underwent surgery for a partially torn meniscus in his right knee, an injury he sustained during the first half of the Aggie's season opener against Liberty on Thursday. He is expected to be out for three to four weeks.

The 6'7" junior lead the Aggies in scoring last year, averaging 14.4 points per game. Expectations for Middleton are high heading into the 2011-2012 season. Middleton was named to the preseason All Big 12 team and the Naismith and Wooden awards watch lists.

Initially, team doctors thought Middleton had injured his hamstring. A precautionary MRI revealed the partial tear. According to reports from A&M, the surgery went well.

Without their leading scorer, the Aggies will turn to their upperclassmen, including junior forward Ray Turner, who scored 20 points in Thursday's 81-59 victory over Liberty. Senior forward David Loubeau and junior guard Elston Turner also turned in strong performances, with 14 and 16 points respectively.

If all goes well, Middleton will be healthy in time for conference play.
