STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald will not return to action in Saturday's football season opener against Stephen F. Austin.
Coach Joe Moorhead says Fitzgerald and defensive lineman Cory Thomas will not play because they violated team policy.
According to Moorhead, Fitzgerald's violation happened in March.
The quarterback's return was highly anticipated since he broke his leg in the 2017 Egg Bowl.
