MSU’s Bell Takes “Turn For The Worse”

Bad news from the Mississippi State football family this morning.  Sophomore defensive end Nick Bell underwent emergency surgery in Birmingham yesterday after his skin cancer was found to have spread.  He was in ICU as of last night, according to The Northeast Mississippi Journal.

“He took a little turn for the worse in the past three days,” Dan Mullen said yesterday.  “We ask that everyone keeps Nick and his family in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”

A large mass was removed from Bell’s brain last month.  He was expected to begin chemotherapy today, but his health worsened over the weekend.

MSU athletic director Scott Stricklin filled in for Mullen at a speaking engagement last night and told the audience that Bell was in “grave” condition and was “fighting for his life.”

Rick Cleveland of The Jackson Clarion-Ledger has much more here.

Our thoughts are with the Bell family.
