Mississippi State Quarterback Garrett Shrader Suffers Facial Injury

Mississippi State Quarterback Garrett Shrader Suffers Facial Injury

The Mississippi State Bulldogs will be without their starting quarterback entering the Music City Bowl on Monday.

It is reported the freshman quarterback Garrett Shrader broke his orbital bone during an altercation with linebacker Willie Gay following one of the bowl practices this past week.

Willie Gay has missed eight games this season due to academic fraud suspension involved with one of the Mississippi State tutors. Gay has been ejected for fighting earlier this season as well. No suspension seems to be coming after the fight with Shrader.

Shrader has thrown for 1,170 yards this season to go along with eight touchdowns and five interceptions. He was extended playing time in several games this season including wins against Kentucky and Ole Miss.

Senior Penn State transfer Tommy Stevens is expected to start for the injured Shrader. Stevens transferred in the offseason to join former coach Joe Moorhead with his new team in Starkville.

Stevens has thrown for 934 yards, nine touchdowns and five interceptions in limited time this season. Stevens has started eight games this season for the Bulldogs. They are 4-4 in those games.

The Bulldogs face the Louisville Cardinals in the Music City Bowl on December 30th in Nashville.
