Ole Miss likely without top back for opener

Hugh Freeze‘s first season at Ole Miss has likely gotten a bit tougher, at least early on in the year.

On Wednesday, the Rebels head coach acknowledged there is the distinct possibility his team will be without running back Jeff Scott Saturday against  Central Arkansas.  Scott has battled a back issue throughout camp, and Freeze didn’t sound optimistic in the junior’s availability for the opener.

“Not sure what’s exactly going on there,” Freeze said during the SEC coaches teleconference. “He still could play but I’m not real confident as of today.”

Scott led the Rebels with 529 yards and six rushing touchdowns last season.  He was also fifth in receptions with 15.

    He’s 4th on the depth chart. Not a starter.

    @philwauke: hey, genius, click on this link…

    …then scroll down to the portion that reads “UPDATED DEPTH CHART.” Or, to save you some time, hit “CTRL” and “F” at the same time, and type “depth” in the box that pops up. You’ll have to hit the down arrow in that box once, but tell me what you find.

    Tell’em like it is JT…, everybody think they’re an expert.
    What makes a great leader; General, CEO, coach, etc??
    Know what you don’t know, and allow those that do know, do their job.
    That’s my word of wisdom for today
