Mississippi State hosts top-ranked Alabama Saturday and the Bulldogs may be doing so without quarterback Dak Prescott.
MSU head coach Dan Mullen said Monday that Prescott is questionable after suffering an elbow injury in the fourth quarter of last Saturday’s loss to Texas A&M. Prescott did not practice Monday, and Mullen said more about his status will be known on Wednesday.
Prescott has started six of 10 games this season, while Tyler Russell has started four.
Russell is currently listed as the starter on the Bulldogs’ depth chart, but Prescott played well in relief of Russell against A&M, throwing for 149 yards and two touchdowns while also racking up 154 yards on the ground.
Prescott played the A&M game with a heavy heart after his mother passed away from colon cancer on November 4.
On the season, Prescott has accumulated 1,542 yards and seven touchdowns through the air and 722 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground.
