While the Texas A&M Aggies announced they are starting Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel, all is quiet in Nashville as head coach James Franklin said Wednesday after practice he has not yet decided on who will be under center for the Commodores Saturday.

Senior Austyn Carta-Samuels was carried off the field last weekend in the second quarter of Vanderbilt's come from behind win over then #15 Georgia and spent the second half on the sideline with crutches.

James Franklin said Carta-Samuels was at the first part of practice Wednesday night but that he left early for treatment.

There is no word on what kind of injury the Senior QB suffered or how long he might be out.

Replaced by Freshman Patton Robinette, who led the Dores to seventeen 4th quarter points and their first win against a top 25 team since 2006, Robinette took the majority of the snaps with the first team according to Franklin but he still won't make a decision until later this week leaving the door open for Carta-Samuels to start.

“When you have an experienced quarterback like we do, you want to give him every opportunity to play as you possibly can.”

If Robinette does have to play he says he'll be ready like he is every week, “I'm just out here working hard everyday to be able to execute the offense and lead the team if I get the call.”
