STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen says
injured offensive linemen James Carmon and Quentin Saulsberry won't need surgery after injuries suffered during Saturday's 41-34 loss
Mullen said Saulsberry has a sprained knee, but there was a
"good chance" the senior center could return for No. 25
Mississippi State when it hosts No. 3 LSU on Thursday. Carmon
suffered a leg injury in the second quarter against Auburn, and the
starting left tackle spent the second half on the sidelines on
crutches. Mullen didn't give any details about Carmon's injury, or
make a prediction about the 6-foot-7, 320-pound senior's
availability against LSU.
Carmon's backup is 6-foot-7, 295-pound redshirt freshman Blaine
Clausell. Mullen said even with the injuries, game film showed the
offensive line played well against Auburn.
