Ole Miss Rebels Injury Report - A lot of Players to Miss LSU Game

We all saw just how many players had to leave the field due to injuries last week against the Aggies, with starters on both offense and defense having to sit out for much of the second half in what was a physical, hard-fought football game. According to Hugh Freeze, the post Texas A&M injury situation looks something like this:

  • Linebacker Serderius Bryant - Concussion, day-to-day
  • Defensive end Robert Nkemdiche - Hamstring, will not play against LSU
  • Linebacker/Defensive End Temario Strong - I can't find specifics on his injury, but he is doubtful to play
  • Halfback Jeff Scott - Thigh bruise, questionable
  • Defensive Back Mike Hilton - Hamstring, "not probable" to play
  • Defensive Tackle Issac Gross - Shoulder, "will try" to play this weekend
  • Quarterback Barry Brunetti - Shoulder, will play, but is not at 100%
  • Safety Chief Brown - Injury specifics unknown, but will likely play

The following three were injured heading into Texas A&M, but will also miss the LSU game

  • Defensive end C.J. Johnson - Lingering ankle issue, "probably not" going to play
  • Defensive end Carlos Thompson - Unspecific injury, "definitely" out against LSU
  • Offensive guard Aaron Morris - Torn ACL, out for season

After playing Texas, Alabama, and Auburn on the road, only to return home to play Texas A&M, it's understandable that there would be some injuries, but the Rebels are absolutely depleted in some areas, particularly in the front seven on defense. Let's wish these players the speediest and fullest of recoveries, and let's hope that we don't suffer any additional bang-ups against LSU this weekend.
