Dri Archer Expected to Return For Western Michigan Game

Kirk Irwin

The All-American could return to action this week after missing most of the season due to a sprained ankle.

The electric offensive weapon that is Dri Archer has been M.I.A. so far this season as he attempts to recover from a sprained ankle that sidelined him in Week 1. Since then Archer has struggled to return, missing Kent State's (1-3, 0-1 MAC) Week 2 game vs. Bowling Green, before returning against LSU in Week 3, only to re injure the ankle and miss last weeks loss to Penn State.

But apparently Archer is rested and good to go for Saturday's match up with the struggling Western Michigan Broncos (0-4). During Monday's Mid-American Conference coaches teleconference Golden Flashes' head coach Paul Haynes said they should have Archer back this week.

In 2012 Archer lit the MAC on fire, managing 23 total touchdowns and finishing fifth in the nation with 184.1 all-purpose yards per game. He was also an All-American at kick returner. But in very limited action this season he has managed just 17 yards in two games. Without Archer in the backfield, Kent State has struggled to run the ball, currently averaging just 104.8 yards per game, down from the 225.8 yards per game from 2012. If Archer can return to action at 100 percent he can provide a huge boost to the Flashes' offense.
