LSU Football: Arden Key To Return vs. Mississippi State

The LSU football team has looked pretty good through its first two weeks of the 2017 season.

LSU has played vastly inferior competition, but they’ve beat up on them as well as you would expect them too. The team plays Mississippi State in its next matchup; their first real test.

That’s why news of getting one of their best players back was met with nothing but relief and excitement.

On Monday, star defender Arden Key posted the following video to his Twitter account. He’ll be back to game action against the Bulldogs when the Tigers meet Mississippi State on the road.

A look at his highlight reel reminds you of how explosive a player he is.

Coach Orgeron confirmed that he’d been cleared to play on Saturday.

The gravel-voiced coach said that he and his coaching staff intended to “play him as much as we can.”

Key underwent shoulder surgery in the offseason and missed LSU’s first two games of the season. He set a program record last season with 12 sacks, and was easily the most disruptive force on a stacked Tigers defense.

LSU has already outscored their opponents 72-10 this season, with him back in the fold defensively, that differential might grow even larger.
