Denzel Nkemdiche is out for the rest of the season with a broken ankle, and several other Rebels could miss significant time this weekend against Auburn after a tough, physical loss to the LSU Tigers this past weekend.
Several other players found their way to the injury report as well per head coach Hugh Freeze during today's press conference:
Ben Still, Robert Nkemdiche, Laremy Tunsil and Cody Prewitt are all "day-to-day."— Hugh Kellenberger (@HKellenbergerCL) October 27, 2014
Still's suffering through an MCL he sprained against Tennessee, Tunsil injured his bicep against LSU (some folks are calling it a tear, others are calling it a very bad pull), while Prewitt and Nkemdiche the Younger's injuries are not yet disclosed.
In Hugh Freeze's press conference, Still was mentioned as the "biggest concern" with the others in a better situation to see time against Auburn if the pain they're feeling is tolerable. That means that, at the worst case scenario, two starting offensive linemen and two of the team's defensive MVP's will possibly miss time against Auburn. As I wrote in our Postgame Digestion story, we have to worry that such a violent, physical contest could allow LSU to "beat us twice," once in their place and once in ours by putting the Rebels behind a proverbial 8-ball injury wise.
