Tyler Lockett's Health Is Key To Kansas State's Football Success In 2012

Bill Snyder will have to bring out the best in his players. Collin Klein will have to carry the offense. But of any player who could make or break Kansas State's chances for success in 2012, it might just be Tyler Lockett as he attempts to come back from injury and make the on-field impact that everyone knows he is capable of. If K-State wants to repeat last season's 10 wins, Lockett will likely have to be a big part of that.

The 5-11 receiver from Tulsa might be small in stature, but he can put up big numbers if given the chance. In the return game, he's been a force for the Wildcats with 2 touchdowns last season. He also had 18 catches for 246 yards and 3 touchdowns. Unfortunately he missed the last few games last season and continues to deal with health concerns.

"Lockett missed the last part of 2011 with a lacerated kidney, but healed up in time for spring," writes David Ubben. "The problem? The Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year suffered another minor injury just before the spring game and had to sit out again. He's healthy, though, and ready to make the most of his sophomore season."

Lockett will have to be healthy for the Wildcats to take the Big 12 by storm again in 2012.
