I dont think ptraj can do this but amber comes with the molsurf program
that computes SASAs. You would have to transform your mdcrd into a series
of pqr-files for your residue, which wouldnt be hard to do by hand, or
have MM-PBSA do it... Unless your residue is partially buried in some
macromolecule, in which case it might become more tricky...
