Mississippi State Bulldogs senior starting safety Kendrick Market has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the 2015 season.
Market’s injury was reported by Logan Lowery of The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal.
Bulldogs coach Dan Mullen briefly addressed Market’s injury, which effectively ends his college career as he has no eligibility options remaining.
“Unfortunately that was probably the last play of his career,” said head coach Dan Mullen. “It’s always a shame. You never know when it’s going to end for a young man. …
“He’s an amazing young man. He’s about 5-8, 195 and runs a 4.75 forty and has been an impact player in the Southeastern Conference. It just shows the type of person that he is, the man he is, the work ethic he has and how successful he’ll be in his life.”
In his time in Starkville, Market posted 139 tackles with an interception and a forced fumble. He had played in all but one of Mississippi State’s games this season, having missed the matchup against Northwestern State due to a foot injury.
Needless to say, here’s hoping that Market recovers quickly and finds a way to continue playing football.
Mississippi State takes on the Sun Belt’s Troy Trojans in Starkville on Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 4 p.m. ET.
