San Diego State's pass defense is welcoming back a player it wasn't sure it would have this year. Defensive back Dey Juan Hemmings suffered a horrible ankle injury two springs ago, tried to come back too soon last fall and was finally granted a medical redshirt to have another crack at a senior season.
After three surgeries for a completely dislocated ankle, along with ligament and tendon damage, Hemmings appears to be back at last. Given a second chance at a senior season after starting nine games in the 2009 season. He says he's healthy and the work on the field seems to agree. His return will help this defense.
