Mississippi State will be without quarterback Garret Shrader for its matchup against Louisville in Monday’s Music City bowl. He’ll miss the game due to an injury he picked up at practice, but it’s not a typical injury.

As first reported by 247 Sports, Shrader allegedly got into a post-practice fight with teammate Willie Gay and suffered a broken orbital bone during the scuffle.

Shrader and a defensive teammate had been in a confrontation stemming from an in-practice contact drill. Their post-practice altercation escalated before other Bulldogs separated them.
