OXFORD, Miss. (AP) Mississippi's off week comes at an optimal time for the Rebels because it gives them an opportunity to recover from a bruising 24-17 loss to Texas A&M.
Freshman quarterback John Rhys Plumlee is having a minor knee procedure this week and should be back in time for Ole Miss' next game Nov. 2 at No. 9 Auburn. Jerrion Ealy, who took a blow to the head in the first half of the loss to Texas A&M, is in concussion protocol and is day-to-day.
Plenty of other Rebels also are dealing with injuries.
