Source: Dixon to dress vs. Jackson St.

Mississippi State running back Anthony Dixon will dress vs. Jackson State on Saturday, though it has not been determined how much or if he'll play at all, a person close to Dixon said Thursday.

Dixon had a legal issue and coach Dan Mullen had previously said Dixon would need to meet certain criteria to re-establish his position with the team.

Mississippi State's most accomplished offensive player, the 6-foot-1, 236-pound Dixon rushed for 869 yards and seven touchdowns last season and had 1,066 yards and 14 touchdowns as a sophomore.
