Spring football is no longer a hit at Mississippi State.
The Bulldogs spring football game had to be called off when running back Bennie Braswell took a huge hit that left him dazed.
WCBI-TV reports the remained of the game was cancelled when safety Jonathan Abram collided with Braswell at full speed, leaving the running back struggling to stand up. Braswell dropped an option pitch from quarterback Logan Burnett and was trying to pick up the loose football when he was crushed.
Despite the fact the game was being played against teammates, Abram didn’t hold back from flipping the hit stick. The safety’s shoulder connected directly with Braswell’s head.
The running back had to be helped off the field after laying on the ground following the hit.
Bulldogs coach Dan Mullen called Abran for targeting and ejected him from the game before calling it altogether. After the game, Mullen didn’t seem to talk about the hit, but did tell SECCountry he liked how his defense looked.
“You know the defense I want to play here — guys flying to the football as hard as they can. Trying to go make plays and playing an aggressive style of defense,” Mullen said.
