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.
M's game against New Mexico on Sept. 6, and sophomore Jerrod Johnson stepped in to lead the Aggies to a 28-22 victory.
``I'm feeling pretty good,'' McGee said Monday. ``I'm just looking for improvement every day, just taking it day by day. I've been making big strides these last three days.''
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.
when an MRI revealed no structural damage to his shoulder. He said he was initially worried because he's had surgery on his non-throwing shoulder before and knows how long it takes to recover. McGee said he hasn't missed a game since he started playing football in fourth grade.
``It's very difficult because I've never been in this situation my entire life,'' he said. ``This is one tough deal. I've never had one like this.''
McGee said he was encouraged that he didn't experience any pain Sunday while throwing and he wasn't very sore Monday after the light workout.
Johnson, who was practicing at receiver and quarterback before McGee's injury, said the off week has helped him feel more comfortable with the offense. He said he'll be prepared to play either position.
``I'm going in with the intention of playing quarterback,'' he said. ``If I am prepared for that then I can play any other positions I need to play. I feel pretty confident in my skills at receiver. Whatever they need me to do I'm ready.''
