How did you spend your holiday weekend? Personally I just hung around the house and watched a whole lot of sports. Which is a much different story than the one Mississippi State wide receiver Chris Smith would tell you if he wasn't having so much trouble talking right now. It seems Smith found himself in the middle of some kind of "altercation" this weekend, and he has himself a broken jaw to show for it.
Smith, a rising junior, will undergo surgery Tuesday in Columbus and is not expected to miss workouts or fall practice, a team spokesman confirms. The altercation occurred Saturday, MSU coach Dan Mullen said when reached by telephone Monday night. Details surrounding the altercation were not immediately known. A request seeking a possible police report from the Meridian Police Department was not fulfilled Monday evening.
“We’re still investigating all the events around what happened,” Mullen said.
I see a whole lot of milkshakes in Smith's future, which seems pretty awesome until you remember he has a broken jaw.
Smith didn't get a lot of playing time in 2010, though he did finish the season strong for the Bulldogs and is expected to get more playing time in 2011. After not doing much of anything all year, Smith caught 13 passes for 165 yards in Mississippi State's final three games.
