Mississippi State’s star running back will return from injury in time to play Kentucky.
Head coach Mike Leach said Monday afternoon that he expects running back Kylin Hill and reserve quarterback Will Rogers to be available to play Saturday night at Kroger Field. Rogers, a true freshman, will serve as K.J. Costello’s backup. He has not been available to play all season. Hill will play a much more significant role against the Wildcats.
Hill only had one carry for seven yards when he was sidelined against Arkansas after taking a big hit in the first quarter. In his air raid debut against LSU, the powerful running back proved he can catches passes too, racking up 158 yards on eight receptions, taking one 75 yards for a touchdown. He carried the ball seven times for 34 yards in the opener.
A first team All-SEC selection in 2019, Miss. State’s offense has its best offensive playmaker back in time to bounce back from a bad loss against Arkansas.
