Wide receiver Reggie Todd will not be a part of the Mississippi State football roster this fall the school confirmed on Monday. Todd was previously indefinitely suspended following an arrest on a simple assault charge last month.

Todd played in all 13 games for MSU in his freshman year last season. The Mobile, Alabama, native caught 14 passes for 160 yards and one touchdown.

With his 6-foot-4 inch, 200-pound frame, Todd was expected to possibly have an increased role for the Bulldogs this season as a deep threat in new head coach Joe Moorhead’s offense. That obviously now won’t be happening.

Todd was arrested on June 12. He turned himself in at the Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Office as a result of warrants issued in his case. Todd was allegedly involved in an altercation with another male at a party. The original call was investigated as an aggravated assault, but investigators later determined a misdemeanor simple assault was the appropriate charge. After his arrest, Todd was released on a $1,000 bond, then later, Moorhead issued his statement suspending Todd.

“We are aware of the incident involving Reggie Todd,” Moorhead said on June 13. “Reggie has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities. We will have no further comment on the matter at this time.”

247Sports reported on Monday that Todd hasn’t been involved in any way with the Mississippi State football program since Moorhead’s statement, and that he won’t attend classes at MSU this fall or be involved in any football-related activities.

However, according to the 247Sports report, Todd may have the opportunity to return to the MSU program for the 2019 spring semester.
