The Memphis Tigers get a boost to their defensive line with the return of Latarius Brady from ACL surgery.

A former starter, the senior from East High School tore the ligament in spring practice, but the 6'2", 280 pounder has worked diligently to get back on the field ahead of schedule.

"It's truly a blessing." Brady said. "It was a lot of hard work. Going to get treatment, sometimes two and three times a day. i just did everything i could to get back on the field with these guys."

Kickoff for the Tigers and Green Wave is 7 p.m. Friday in New Orleans.
