Here’s some bad news: A.J. Brown, the best receiver in the country, and Gary Wunderlich, one of the best kickers in the country, are done for the night after suffering leg injuries against Cal. This is no damn good.
Brown took a hard helmet to his leg on a bad interception play in the second quarter of Ole Miss’ bout with Cal in Berkeley, while Wunderlich suffered something of an over-extension on his hamstring shortly thereafter. Both of these bits of news bode very poorly for an Ole Miss club that already plays by their shoestrings, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
Remarkably, Brown had no receptions upon heading to the locker room. He’s Shea Patterson’s favorite target. Wunderlich had hit a field goal and extra point before his hamstring bailed out.
UPDATE: Neither Brown nor Wunderlich will return to the game. Everything is bad. And this particular instance is EXTREMELY BAD.
