Ole Miss sophomore WR D.K. Metcalf caught three passes for 125 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-16 loss to Cal.

Sprinting through the secondary with just over two minutes gone in the second quarter, Metcalf caught a perfectly-thrown 71-yard touchdown bomb from QB Shea Patterson, one which the 6-foot-3, 224-pounder was able to catch without losing any speed. That would be the final score of the game for the Rebs, who were shut out the rest of the way. It was a shaky offensive performance on the whole for Ole Miss after a quick start and the kind of game that might become commonplace once Metcalf and company hit conference play starting with a Week 5 showdown against Alabama at the end of September. There's plenty of upside in this offense, but it's also a young offense, one which became easily flustered once Cal started to put pressure on Patterson in the second half on Saturday.

Ole Miss sophomore WR A.J. Brown was forced out of Saturday's loss to Cal due to a knee injury.

Brown sustained the knee injury in the first quarter, on a play which resulted in an interception from Rebs QB Shea Patterson. While there is no current timetable for his return, he'll have the bye week to heal up before Ole Miss travels to Tuscaloosa for a showdown with Alabama. Brown entered action on Saturday having caught 16 passes for 389 yards and a quartet of touchdowns in two games.

Ole Miss sophomore QB Shea Patterson completed 25-of-43 passes for 361 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions in a 27-16 loss to Cal on Saturday.

It was a big night for Patterson in terms of yardage, but the 6-foot-2, 203-pound signal-caller struggled with accuracy for most of the game, and he also made three costly turnovers. His last turnover was the most costly, as he threw a pick with three minutes left that was returned 31 yards for a touchdown to put Cal up 27-16. Patterson has all the talent to be an upper-level quarterback, but he's going to have to make better decisions going forward if Ole Miss has any chance of competing in the daunting SEC. He'll get a week off before taking on arguably the toughest of those tests when the Rebels go to Alabama on September 30.
Sep 17 - 2:12 AM

Ole Miss sophomore WR A.J. Brown caught eight passes for 156 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 45-23 win over Tennessee-Martin.

Brown has been QB Shea Patterson's favorite target through two games. The 6-foot-2, 218-pounder shredded South Alabama for an 8-233-2 receiving line in the season-opener. He'll try to keep it going against Cal next weekend. In just two games, the sophomore wideout has already caught 16 passes for 389 yards and four touchdowns.
Sep 9 - 4:21 PM

Ole Miss sophomore QB Shea Patterson destroyed Tennessee-Martin in Saturday's 45-23 win, completing 32-of-43 passes for 489 yards, five touchdowns and an interception.

Patterson has yet to play a high-caliber opponent yet, but boy howdy, has he shredded against South Alabama and Tennessee-Martin. In victories over those two teams, he has thrown for 918 yards with a 9/1 TD/INT ratio. Matters won't get much more difficult next weekend, as the Rebs will be taking on Cal. They'll close out September against Alabama, Patterson's first true test of the current campaign.
Sep 9 - 4:18 PM

Ole Miss sophomore WR A.J. Brown caught eight passes for 233 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 47-27 win over South Alabama.

Brown (6'2/218) and QB Shea Patterson had themselves some fun in the third quarter, with the latter hooking up with the former for a pair of long touchdown passes -- 71 yards, 77 yards -- within the span of about two minutes right after halftime. During the offseason, SEC Country's Shehan Jeyarajah wrote that Patterson and Brown had the potential to develop into "the SEC's next great pairing." The wideout hauled in 29 passes for 412 yards and two touchdowns as a true freshman last season. He's more than halfway home to reaching that yardage total one game into the current campaign.
Sep 3 - 1:26 PM

Ole Miss sophomore QB Shea Patterson completed 28-of-35 passes for 429 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 47-27 win over South Alabama.

Spectacular debut for Patterson, who has doggedly stuck by Ole Miss even after a slew of alleged NCAA rules violations and the surprise summer resignation of HC Hugh Freeze. The super sophomore has thrown for at least 300 yards in three of his four starts with the Rebs dating back to last season. We expect him to keep pumping in the numbers, even with the competition ramping up over the coming weeks -- Ole Miss figures to be in its fair share of holes on the scoreboard, which should only help boost Patterson's statistical profile.
Sep 3 - 12:56 PM

Ole Miss redshirt junior LS Chadwick Lamar has quit football.

Lamar is moving away from football in order to study law. With the 6-foot-1, 206-pounder leaving the Rebels, long-snapping duties will now be handled by freshman Jack Probst. Ole Miss opens the season against South Alabama on Saturday.
Sep 1 - 8:44 PM

The Clarion-Ledger's Antonio Morales passes along that Ole Miss sophomore DE Qaadir Sheppard "has emerged" as a starter opposite Marquis Haynes.

Sheppard (6'3/233) has pushed ahead of Victor Evans to put himself on the track to start when the Rebs kick off against South Alabama on September 2. He initially signed with Syracuse as part of the 2015 recruiting class, but the former three-star recruit was kicked off the Orange last February, reportedly due to a pair of failed drug tests. He recorded just one tackle and an interception in his lone active season back in 2015.
Aug 17 - 4:48 PM

Updating a previous item, Ole Miss redshirt junior RB Jordan Wilkins sustained a minor knee sprain during practice on Monday.

Wilkins limped off in practice on Monday. The specifics of the injury were not immediately available at the time, but it appears as though the 6-foot-1, 215-pounder won't be out of action for long. He figures to be back in practice later this week unless the Rebels are playing coy with the severity of the injury.
Aug 8 - 1:02 PM

Ole Miss redshirt junior RB Jordan Wilkins left Monday's practice with a possible ankle or foot injury.

Wilkins limped off the field during practice and afterward, interim HC Matt Luke said that the team does not yet know the severity of the injury. Expect further updates on that front as the week progresses. An expected starter for the coming season, Wilkins rushed for 379 yards and four touchdowns a year ago.
Aug 7 - 5:03 PM

Ole Miss interim head coach Matt Luke announced that redshirt junior CB Ken Webster will be suspended one game after he was arrested Tuesday night on one count of shoplifting.

Webster will miss the opener against South Alabama on Sept. 2. Webster started all 13 games in 2015. He also started the 2016 opener before suffering a season-ending leg injury on the first series against Florida State. Webster missed spring practices while rehabbing, but he should be good to go for the Week 2 game on Sept. 9 against UT-Martin.
Aug 3 - 4:03 PM

Ole Miss redshirt junior Detric Bing-Dukes was suspended for one game after being arrested Tuesday night on one count of shoplifting.

Redshirt junior CB Ken Webster was also docked a game for his involvement in the scheme. Ole Miss opens against South Alabama on Sept. 2. If the duo is reinstated as planned, they'd be eligible to play in the Sept. 9 tilt against FCS UT-Martin. Both are projected starters.
Aug 3 - 2:37 PM

Ole Miss redshirt junior CB Ken Webster was arrested Tuesday night along with linebacker Detric Bing-Dukes on one count each of shoplifting.

Details on the incident are sparse at this time, and interim head coach Matt Luke indicated that the program will gather facts before rendering judgement on these players' futures. A projected starter, Webster suffered a season-ending leg injury on the first series of last season's opener against Florida State. Webster missed spring practices while rehabbing but was expected to be a full-participant in fall camp.
Aug 2 - 3:51 PM

Ole Miss redshirt junior Detric Bing-Dukes was arrested Tuesday night on one count of shoplifting.

Cornerback Ken Webster, a fellow projected starter, was also arrested for his involvement in the incident. No additional details have been provided. "We are gathering facts on the matter," interim head coach Matt Luke said. Bing-Dukes began his career at Georgia. He dropped to the JUCO level before transferring to Ole Miss in 2015.
