Rebel out with Heart Issue

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi coach Houston Nutt says
starting defensive end Kentrell Lockett is not practicing because
of a recurring heart condition.
Lockett is undergoing tests to diagnose the problem.
Nutt says Lockett's heart was "racing" on Saturday, forcing
him to leave practice early.
The third-year coach says Lockett had a similar heart issue two
years ago, but was cleared to play. He expects to learn more about
Lockett's health on Tuesday.
The 6-foot-5, 260-pound senior from Hahnville, La., finished
third on the team with 10 tackles for a loss and five sacks in
2009. His backup is sophomore Gerald Rivers, who saw limited
playing time last year.
The Rebels open their season on Saturday at home against
Jacksonville State.
