Just a week after Chris Bumphis injured his ankle in the Mississippi State weight room, another Bulldog receiver has suffered an off-field injury. This time, State wideout Chris Smith broke his saw in “an altercation” in Meridian, Mississippi on Saturday, according to The Jackson Clarion-Ledger.
Smith — a rising junior — caught 24 passes for 264 yards and a touchdown last season.
As for how Smith broke his jaw, Dan Mullen said, “We’re still investigating all the events around what happened.” Police in Meridian told The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that there are no records of an arrest or citation for Smith.
Smith is scheduled to undergo surgery on his jaw today. Now MSU will be without two of its most-proven receivers heading into the summer. Bumphis is still on crutches due to his ankle injury.
