Kent State redshirt freshman quarterback Colin Reardon practiced full-go on Wednesday and is expected to be in the starting lineup Saturday at Ball State.

Reardon was helped off the field after injuring his left shoulder in the closing seconds of last Saturday's 38-24 loss to Northern Illinois. He was flushed out of the pocket then hit from behind by Huskies defensive end Perez Ford, forcing an incompletion.

Reardon practiced on a limited basis Tuesday, but was able to go the distance on Wednesday.

"He's good," said Golden Flashes head coach Paul Haynes via text message Wednesday night, when asked about Reardon's status.

Reardon has completed 101-of-178 passes for 1,033 yards and eight touchdowns with three interceptions, and has also rushed 50 times for 151 yards and a score.

Kickoff for Saturday's game between the Flashes (2-4, 1-2 MAC) and Cardinals (5-1, 2-0) is set for 3 p.m.
