Kentrell Lockett thrilled just to play again

Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt was awaiting official word that Lockett will indeed be able to practice today.

Ole Miss defensive coordinator Tyrone Nix would love to have him back.

“When things break down or things don’t go according to the way you scripted, you need some guys to take charge and be the bell cow,” said Nix. “I think Kentrell Lockett is for sure one of those guys.”
