He's back ... just in time: Southern DB Bryan Anderson will be in uniform for opener

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- Southern defensive back Bryan Anderson hasn’t played in a real football game since the Jaguars went to the Southwestern Athletic Conference championship in 2013.

That drought ends Saturday.

Anderson, who originally expected to miss Southern’s season opener at Louisiana-Monroe because of a knee injury, made a surprise recovery and was back on the field this week for practice.

“It feels good to be back out there knowing my knee is 100 percent,” Anderson said. “My job is to get everyone hyped up and amped up. It just feels good to be back with my knee feeling straight.”

Southern coach Dawson Odums said Anderson will not claim the starting spot against the Warhawks after missing the majority of preseason camp, but the junior will play about 15-20 plays.
