After Week 1 injury, veteran Ole Miss WR expected to play against Cal
Ole Miss has been without one of its best offensive weapons, wide receiver Braylon Sanders, because of injury since early in Week 1. But the Rebels finally have some good news on that front, as Sanders is back at practice this week.
Sanders is also expected to return to game action this Saturday against Cal according to Rebel Grove.
No one on the team is probably more pleased with that news than quarterback Matt Corral.
“It’s just another receiver that I trust out there,” Corral said. “Me and Braylon have the on and off the field chemistry. We hang out a lot. That’s my brother right there, so I trust him. It’s just him getting reps and him getting back in shape.”
Sanders was sixth on the team in receiving yards last year and was expected to help fill the holes left from the departures of wideouts A.J. Brown and D.K. Metcalf, both of whom left for the NFL. Sanders posted 16 catches for 271 yards with a touchdown in 2018.
He didn’t record any stats before leaving with an injury in Week 1.
