Mississippi State loses Leon Berry

Mississippi State will be without one of its most explosive offensive/special teams performers for the remainder of the regular season.

Coach Dan Mullen said Monday that senior receiver Leon Berry had surgery to repair a dislocated left ankle and that he could possibly return in time for a bowl game. Berry was averaging 26.8 yards on kickoff returns and took one back 97 yards for a touchdown earlier this season. He'd also caught eight passes and was averaging 23.5 yards per catch.
