Hingle-USA TODAY SportsSTARKVILLE — Mississippi State senior corner Taveze Calhoun played for the first time this season last week against LSU.A knee injury forced coaches to sideline Calhoun in MSU’s season-opener against Southern Miss on Sept. 6.“My knee feels good, just overall soreness in my body, just from not being out there with reps. My knee is fine,” Calhoun said. “It’s healthy. I don’t have any problems with my knee.”Calhoun led the secondary with 53 tackles last year. He also led the team with nine break ups and 10 passes defensed.Two weeks ago in Hattiesburg, Mississippi State allowed more than 300 yards passing to the Golden Eagles.“I could’ve played. I feel like I could’ve played,” Calhoun said. “But we didn’t want to risk anything. It probably would’ve been a risk if I would’ve played. But I definitely felt good enough.”Last week, Mississippi State’s secondary wasn’t tested much. LSU’s Brandon Harris attempted only 14 passes. He completed nine for 71 yards.“You just have to stay alert the whole game. We knew what they were trying to do. We weren’t able to stop the run that well in the game,” Calhoun said. “They really didn’t have a reason to pass.”Calhoun will be back on the field this weekend against Northwestern State. After the home matchup, the Bulldogs head on the road for the next two weeks at Auburn and at Texas A&M.Calhoun back will help Mississippi State’s deep secondary that includes Will Redmond, Cedric Jiles and Tolando Cleveland.“It felt good. It was the first time I played a game since January 1,” Calhoun said. “It felt good. I had been away for a long time. I felt a little rusty, but overall I think I did pretty well for being my first time back.”Contact Michael Bonner at [email protected] Follow @MikeBBonner on Twitter.
