Matt Luke updates status on injured WR A.J. Brown
Ole Miss is getting set to square off against No. 1 Alabama Saturday, and the Rebels are hoping the SEC’s leading receiver will be available for the contest.
Ole Miss WR A.J. Brown is still dealing with a knee injury, and coach Matt Luke says Brown will be a game time decision against Alabama. Injured OL Sean Rawlings will also be a game time decision for the Rebels.
The Ole Miss-Alabama rivalry has been a good one lately. The Rebels won back-to-back meetings in 2014 and 2015 before the Crimson Tide won in dramatic fashion last season by a score of 48-43.
This season, however, is a completely different story as Hugh Freeze is no longer at Ole Miss. The game will be in Tuscaloosa, and Alabama would like to post another dominant win after disposing of Vanderbilt 59-0.
In order for the Rebels to hang with the Crimson Tide, they will likely need to have both injured players back on the field. Brown still leads the SEC in receiving yards (389) and is the Rebels best weapon.
