Report: Ole Miss QB Shea Patterson out for the year with a knee injury
Ole Miss QB Shea Patterson was injured during the first half of Saturday night’s loss to LSU, limping off the field and into the locker room.
However, he returned to the game in the second half with a brace on his right knee and looked to be fine.
An MRI after the game revealed some bad news, though, as the star sophomore apparently has torn his PCL.
According to 247Sports, coach Matt Luke and Patterson’s father have both confirmed that Patterson will miss the rest of the 2017 season due to the injury.
Though the Rebels are banned from bowl contention this year, that’s still devastating news for Luke and his team, as Patterson was the unquestioned leader of the offense.
In Patterson’s absence, backup QB Jordan Ta’amu will lead the team. The Rebels take on Arkansas in Oxford next weekend and will certainly miss Patterson in games against Kentucky, Texas A&M and Mississippi State in the coming weeks.
