Late last month, Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze stated that starting quarterback Bo Wallace would begin throwing a football again 10 days or so.
Two days or so ahead of that prognosis, Wallace has done just that.
At the gala held Thursday to publicly unveil the SEC Network, Freeze confirmed that Wallace had indeed resumed throwing this past Tuesday. That was the first time Wallace had attempted that position-specific skill since January.
“I feel good about his first day. He felt good,” Freeze said.
Wallace, in his first year as the Rebels’ starter, played almost the entire 2012 season with a shoulder injury. After undergoing surgery in mid-January, it was expected Wallace would be sidelined for a period of 4-6 months.
On the SEC coaches’ post-spring teleconference, Freeze said Wallace was ahead of schedule in his rehab.
