If Mississippi State is going to beat Texas A&M Saturday it'll have to do so without the services of its leading receiver.
Multiple outlets are reporting that Jameon Lewis will not play against the Aggies due to a right leg injury. It's unclear what the injury is, or when it was suffered, but whatever the case is, it's a big loss for the Bulldogs offense heading into a big game.

Jameon Lewis has stepped up this season and become the Mississippi State Bulldogs' go to guy in the passing game. The talented junior sat down with Genespage.com to talk about Liberty Bowl week.

Pre-game discussions have focused on how Mississippi State’s defense can stay with the tempo offense Oklahoma State will throw—and run—at them. Jameon Lewis wants to talk the flip-side of this topic. “We can do the same it’s no problem,” the wide receiver said. “We’ve got an arm-slinger too, so it’s just time to go out and show the nation.”
