Kendrick Market to miss rest of season with torn Achilles

first_imgMississippi State lost its second safety in as many weeks. Kendrick Market will miss the rest of the season after he tore his Achilles tendon, MSU coach Dan Mullen said after the Egg Bowl.Market suffered the injury in the first quarter against Ole Miss.Mississippi State doesn’t have any regular season games left but it will play in a bowl game. Market will miss it as well as the bowl game practices. It’s also likely he’ll miss spring practices. It’s possible he could miss substantial time during his senior season next year.Safety Jay Hughes tore his Achilles in last year’s season opener. He didn’t return to the contract practice until almost a year had passed.Market already redshirted as a freshman, but could file for a medical redshirt.Minor SetBack For A Major Comeback!!!!— Kendrick Market (@pokedawg46) November 30, 2014 Everything happens for a reason…— Kendrick Market (@pokedawg46) November 30, 2014Last week, Mississippi State entered its matchup with Vanderbilt without Justin Cox. The senior safety was suspended indefinitely after he was arrested and charged with burglary and aggravated domestic violence.The Bulldogs’ pass defense finished the regular season as the fourth-worst passing defense in the country, allowing 285 yards per game. MSU allowed 532 total yards to the Rebels last Saturday. Quarterback Bo Wallace threw for 296 yard on just 13 completions.“We’re going to watch the film and see where we missed on all of them,” Mullen said. “I’ll make sure I evaluate it and that we’re doing the right things to make sure that doesn’t happen.”The injury leaves Mississippi State with three options at safety: Hughes, along with Kivon Coman and Deontay Evans. Evans saw the most time in Saturday’s Egg Bowl alongside Hughes.last_img read more

“He will come back” – Norwich hopes of signing dealt blow,…

first_imgNorwich City’s hopes of keeping Ondrej Duda beyond this summer have been dealt a blow, with Hertha Berlin planning on keeping him long-term. Duda joined Norwich on loan in the January transfer window, as manager Daniel Farke looked to add creativity to his relegation-threatened side.The midfielder arrived having found his chances of regular game time at Hertha Berlin limited following the arrival of Jürgen Klinsmann as manager.He’s been a regular for the Canaries since making the switch, racking up eight appearances in all competition since his arrival.Embed from Getty ImagesThey may have been hoping to turn his move into a permanent one in the summer, but those prospects have now been dealt a blow.According to Kicker, Norwich do not have an option to buy at the end of his loan, so Hertha are planning to take him back to the club as Klinsmann has long since departed.In fact, sporting director Michael Preetz has confirmed as much when asked about the on-loan midfielder.“We are planning 100 per cent with Ondrej, he will come back”, he told the newspaper.“He has shown how much he can help a team that has a functioning axle.“In winter, he was tired of the personal constellation we had in the coaching position because he saw no prospects for himself. He always wanted Hertha.”by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a Beautiful City and Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Prospect watch: Five Orioles prospects that could be September call ups

first_imgThe Baltimore Orioles have entered a total rebuild and have rebuilt their minor league system.  The Orioles have a lot of new young talent in the farm system.  Some of the new prospects like Cody Carroll have already been called up to the Orioles.  In September the Orioles roster will get to expand.  While this Orioles season has been a complete disaster some of these players should bring some energy to Camden Yards. Yusniel Diaz:  The Orioles acquired outfielder Diaz in the Manny Machado trade and he became the Orioles top prospect.  At age 21 Diaz may not be ready for full time action in the big leagues but he is deserving of a taste in September.  Diaz may be fighting for a roster spot next year for the Orioles.  Look for Diaz to get some action in September.  Diaz has struggled in double-A Bowie since joining the squad, hitting .214, that may be the only thing holding the Orioles back.Ryan Mountcastle:  Mountcastle is the Orioles number two prospect and he has been hitting well all season at double-A Bowie hitting .307 with 11 home runs.  Mountcastle plays third base a position that the Orioles desperately need.  Mountcastle is the real deal when it comes to prospects look for him to make a difference.Cedric Mullins:  Mullins is the ninth best prospect in the Orioles system.  Mullins is batting .313 at Bowie with six home runs.  The speedy outfielder may not be ready for a full season of action but deserves a September call-up.Dillion Tate:  It may be a long shot for Tate to get called up this September but the Orioles may want to see what he has.  Tate was a fourth overall pick by the Rangers in the 2015 MLB draft but has had issues with injuries.  Tate’s first two starts for the Baysox have been rough but the Orioles could use him as a long man in the bullpen.  At 24-years old Tate is an older prospect and needs to get past Double-A at some point.DJ Stewart: Stewart’s prospect watch has dropped since the Orioles acquired the load at the trade deadline.  Stewart is the 24th best prospect for the Orioles.  Stewart may still be the most ready at 24 years old, the former first round pick of the Orioles should get a taste of action.  Stewart has 11 home runs and has a .241 batting average at Triple-A Norfolk, those numbers do not stand out but should be enough to earn him a callup.Please follow and like us:last_img read more
