Mississippi State held Northwestern State to 13 points this past Saturday without one of its top tacklers, safety Kendrick Market, but the Bulldogs would sure like to have him back for Auburn this weekend.
Luckily, they will. Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said during his press conference Monday that Market will play.
“We might keep the cast on him another day, but he’s cleared to practice,” Mullen said, according to Michael Bonner of The Clarion-Ledger. “It’s just how we want to utilize him. We had a lot of discussion whether he was going to practice four days this week or three days this weeks, but he’ll be playing on Saturday.”
Market sat out the game Saturday because of a foot injury. He missed most of Mississippi State’s offseason workouts with a torn Achilles that he suffered in the Egg Bowl last November.
Despite missing one game, Market is fifth on the team with 15 tackles this season. Last year, he recorded 49 tackles, which was seventh-most for Mississippi State.
Mullen said Market "will be playing on Saturday." He's cleared to practice. May keep the cast on one more day.
