STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi State defensive end Nick
Bell is in intensive care after emergency surgery in Birmingham,
Ala., after it was found Sunday that his cancer has spread.

In a statement, MSU coach Dan Mullen says he visited Bell at the
University of Alabama-Birmingham hospital on Monday afternoon.
Bell, who is from Bessemer, Ala., had surgery on Monday morning. He
began experiencing headaches in late September and had surgery on
Oct. 1 to remove a mass on his brain. The mass was later diagnosed
as a form of skin cancer.

Mullen says about 50 Mississippi State players planned to visit
Bell in the hospital on Monday evening.

Bell, a 6-foot-3, 265-pound sophomore, has played in four games
this season, including two starts, making seven tackles.
