Brian Kelly was asked Monday about LSU running back John Emery Jr. who made his return to the football field vs. Mississippi State after missing all of last season and the first two games this year due to academic issues.
quote:

Q. I was curious as to how do you think John Emory sort of fared in his first game back? And how was he feeling after the game after not having played for over a year?

BRIAN KELLY: He was elated after the game that he actually played football for the first time in a long time. He was sore, he was tired and I think he had all the feelings that he remembered in playing. So I think the post was really good.

He was really nervous going in. But I thought he, you know, afforded himself very well. I thought he ran with pretty good vision for a guy that hadn't played in a while. I talked about rust, there was some.

Again, I think, all in all, caught the football, played with low pads and he'll get better. So I thought a good first game for him.

I am very glad to see him back. He has occupied a roster spot for years…now it is time for him to produce.

He seemed to have quite a bit of want.
