Ouch: Mississippi State loses lineman for the year

Mississippi State Bulldogs Logo

Early in the first quarter of the game between LSU and Mississippi State, Bulldogs right guard Tobias Smith suffered an apparent knee injury that kept him out for the rest of the game.

Already thin at offensive line, seeing the junior on the sidelines with an iced-up knee and crutches did little to make any cowbell-ringing fan feel good. Unfortunately, those worst fears have been confirmed.

Multiple media outlets are reporting today via the teams spokesman that Smith has a partially torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season.

The Bulldogs, who went on to lose to LSU 19-6 and dropped to 1-2 overall (0-2 SEC), already lost starting left tackle James Carmon to a leg injury. The time of which Carmon is expected to miss is unclear at this point.

    We are so sorry to hear of Tobias’ injury. That game was smash mouth football that Coach Dan Mullen acknowledged at half time. In normal SEC games there is a risk of being injured. In trench (line) warfare, there is even greater risk. Our hopes are that Tobias fully heals. I personally understand knee injuries, shots, surgeries, and rehab. We wish he and the entire Mississippi State University the best. We hope they win many games this season.
