Another Mississippi State football player has gone down with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
After reports indicating such earlier in the week, MSU head coach Dan Mullen confirmed today on the SEC Network that MSU senior cornerback Will Redmond suffered the injury and will likely be out the remainder of the season.
Redmond is the third Bulldog to suffer a torn ACL this month. Safety Kendrick Market and linebacker Dez Harris have also gone down with the same ailment.
Mississippi State would not comment on Redmond’s status earlier in the week, except to say the school would unveil any players that will be out prior to Saturday’s 6:30 p.m. home matchup against Kentucky.
At his call-in show at The Dawg House Sports Grill on Thursday, MSU head coach Dan Mullen was given a question from a fan regarding Redmond’s potential injury.
“Well I don’t know what you’re talking about,” Mullen said. “We don’t talk about injuries in our program. If you want to find out about our guys, buy a ticket and show up on Saturday. That’s it. I’m going to leave it at that. And if you don’t show up on Saturday, shame on you and you shouldn’t be deserving of asking a question about our injuries.”
So far this season, Redmond has recorded 25 total tackles and hauled in two interceptions.
