K-State football took the podium at Monday’s Big 12 media days, and among the news that was made is that Tyler Lockett will be ready for the season. The sophomore wide receiver/kick returner suffered a lacerated kidney against Oklahoma State last season, and missed the final four games. Wildcat fans became considered the injury might be more serious than thought because Lockett missed the annual Purple/White spring game in April. But, K-State coach Bill Snyder told the media in Dallas that Lockett recovered from the kidney injury after last season, and participated in the first 14 practices of the spring. Snyder said Lockett had a hamstring pull, and that’s why he was held out of the game. The coach said Lockett has been alongside his Wildcat teammates during workouts all summer.
K-State will begin fall camp in less than two weeks, and the season opener is Saturday, September 1st against Missouri State. Kickoff has been set for 6:00pm.
