Or might have. Maybe. Or whatever.
Regardless, a concussion kept Tyler Russell off the field in Mississippi State’s win over Alcorn State this past weekend. The Bulldogs’ starting quarterback suffered the head injury in the season-opening loss to Oklahoma State.
Per head coach Dan Mullen, well, this is Russell’s status for the SEC opener against Auburn:
“I don’t know Tyler’s situation,” Mullen said. “He might not be cleared early in the week. We want to be very cautious with head injuries and are very protective of our players. We want to make sure they are cleared and ready to go before we put them in that situation. I expect him to be ready to go for the game but I don’t know what day this week he’ll be ready to practice though.”
In other words, Mississippi State will have its starting quarterback on the field when it opens SEC play against Auburn.
