Two key Ole Miss veterans in defensive end CJ Johnson and offensive guard Aaron Morris received medical hardship waivers by the NCAA, which means they’ll get an extra year to play beyond 2014, according to the university.
Johnson had a season-ending leg injury in September stemming from a broken leg he suffered in the spring, and Morris tore his ACL week one against Vanderbilt.
Johnson, the former blue chip linebacker recruit, now plays end for the Rebels. He made 12 tackles and four tackles for loss in four games. Morris is one of the offensive line anchors and veterans who started every game as a sophomore in 2012.
