New Mississippi State head coach Joe Moorhead announced Monday that starting quarterback Nick Fitzgerald has been suspended for the season opener against Stephen F. Austin on Saturday. Per ESPN:

The suspension is the result of a violation of team rules that occurred in March.

Keytaon Thompson will start in his place.

Thompson appeared in 10 games as a true freshman last season, starting the TaxSlayer Bowl against Louisville for an injured Fitzgerald. In the win over the Cardinals, Thompson rushed for a season-high three touchdowns.

I think they would be better if they moved him to a WR or receiving tight end and let Thompson be the QB. That's probably the positions he will be moved to if he makes it in the NFL.
