Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly (knee) accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Unfortunately, Kelly will be a bystander, unable to participate in practices or play in the game due to a torn ACL and lateral meniscus. The silver lining is that he can rub elbows with evaluators. Across nine games this year, Kelly threw for 2,758 yards and 19 touchdowns. Fully healthy last season, he threw for 4,042 yards.

Ole Miss redshirt junior WR Damore'ea Stringfellow has declared for the 2017 NFL Draft.

"I cannot begin to express to Rebel Nation what an honor and privilege these last three years have been putting on the Ole Miss jersey each Saturday," Stringfellow said. In 12 games this season, the 6-foot-3, 229-pounder recorded a 46-716-6 receiving line. He wraps his Rebs career having caught 102 passes for 1,478 yards and 12 scores. In October, an anonymous NFL evaluator noted that Stringfellow possesses "deceptive speed" and a natural physicality.

Ole Miss senior DB Carlos Davis was arrested early Sunday and charged with disorderly conduct.

This was hours after the school's loss to Mississippi State, Davis' final game with Ole Miss since the Rebels are not bowl eligible. Ole Miss did not comment on the incident.
Nov 30 - 9:10 AM

Ole Miss freshman QB Shea Patterson completed 27-of-48 passes for 320 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 55-20 loss to Mississippi State.

The season might have turned differently had Chad Kelly not suffered a season-ending knee injury in early November. As is, that injury was sustained, Patterson's redshirt was burned and the Rebels finished the season on a 2-5 tailspin to drop out of bowl contention. But, positivity. Patterson has thrown six touchdown passes in his first three collegiate starts. Two of those contests saw him throw for 300-plus yards. It has been a tough second-half for the Rebs, but the future has at least one shining light in the form of Patterson. That light could well be blinding should Patterson reach his ceiling.

Ole Miss senior TE Evan Engram (undisclosed) is not dressed in advance of Saturday's Egg Bowl showdown with Mississippi State.

The exact nature and circumstance of Engram's injury is not known. He has played in every game this season and just posted a 6-102-1 receiving line in last weekend's loss to Vanderbilt. The 6-foot-3, 227-pound senior leads all FBS tight ends with his 926 yards receiving. Eight of his 65 catches have gone for touchdowns.

Ole Miss TE Evan Engram has accepted his Senior Bowl invitation.

So many NFL fans will be thirsty for Engram after watching him in practice and reviewing his SEC tape. We will not go as far to say that Engram is the next Jordan Reed... but someone will. Engram is a receiving tight end who put together his most productive season and has a good shot of crossing 1,000 receiving yards this year.

Ole Miss senior TE Evan Engram caught six passes for 102 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 38-17 loss to Vanderbilt.

Engram led the Rebs in receiving yardage and tied Van Jefferson for the team lead with his six receptions. The 6-foot-3, 227-pound senior's touchdown came from 38 yards out with 14:53 remaining in the contest. He has been nothing short of phenomenal this season, working to a 65-926-8 receiving line over the course of 11 games.
Nov 20 - 12:42 AM

Ole Miss freshman QB Shea Patterson completed 20-of-42 passes for 222 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 38-17 loss to Vanderbilt.

Patterson brought the Rebels back from a 21-6 fourth-quarter deficit against Texas A&M in his first start of the season last weekend, but there would be no such comeback fun on Saturday. The 6-foot-2, 193-pounder hooked up with Akeem Judd on a 21-yard touchdown toss in the first quarter and hit Evan Engram for a 38-yard score in the fourth quarter. He also rushed for 32 yards. The loss dropped Ole Miss to 5-6 on the season. They will need to defeat Mississippi State next weekend to gain bowl eligibility. Win or lose, Patterson is the future of the program and these reps late in the season should help him hit the ground running come the start of spring practice in 2017.

Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly appeared to be present in a Snapchat photograph in which he was seated at a table with a bag of marijuana.

Well, that is one way to relax after you tear your ACL and lateral meniscus. In the Snapchat photograph -- helpfully titled "Blunts with chad kelly" by a friend -- the quarterback (allegedly, as his face is not in full view) is depicted with three other humans around a table containing a bag of marijuana, a bag of fast food and what would appear to be a half-gallon of water. This won't have any impact on Swag's collegiate career, as the aforementioned knee injury is going to keep him out for the remainder, but NFL teams and scouts will certainly be asking about this photo come the start of the draft process. The timing is at least a little better than that of former teammate Laremy Tunsil, who had his own marijuana-themed photograph drop the night of the draft itself this past April.
Nov 18 - 3:30 PM

Ole Miss freshman QB Shea Patterson completed 25-of-42 passes for 338 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 29-28 win over Texas A&M.

Patterson and the Rebs struggled for much of the contest and trailed 21-6 entering the fourth quarter. The super frosh proceeded to lead his boys on the fourth-quarter comeback trail, though, tossing a pair of touchdown passes in what would ultimately develop into a 23-point final quarter. The second of those scoring passes came on a perfectly thrown 32-yard pass to Van Jefferson in the left corner of the end zone. That one drew Ole Miss to within 26-28. They would ultimately cap the comeback with a walk-off field goal by Gary Wunderlich. In addition to his fine aerial work, Patterson also rushed for 64 yards. The uber-talented youngster will need to come through with a win against either Vanderbilt or Mississippi State over these next two weekends if the 5-5 Rebels are to go bowling.
Nov 13 - 10:51 AM

Ole Miss freshman QB Shea Patterson will start against Texas A&M on Saturday.

After Chad Kelly's season was sent to an early end due to a knee injury sustained in last weekend's win over Georgia Southern, there was immediate chatter that Patterson's redshirt might be burned. And so it will be. The 6-foot-2, 193-pound true freshman will get a starting crack at Texas A&M on Saturday. Rivals ranked him as the No. 3 overall prospect for the 2016 cycle, while NFL Media's Gil Brandt forwarded the belief in June that he will be the "next great college QB NFL teams will be moving up for in the draft. " And Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze said over the offseason that Patterson is "fearless and confident" and "the most college-ready quarterback [he has] seen." Patterson tossed a quartet of touchdowns -- and no interceptions -- in the team's spring game. Buckle up, kiddies. This could be a fun one.
Nov 11 - 1:38 PM

247Sports' Barton Simmons reports that Ole Miss freshman QB Shea Patterson will play in Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

With Chad Kelly's 2016 season cooked due to a knee injury suffered against Georgia Southern over the weekend, the Rebel quarterbacking situation is now wobbling about. The choice comes down to Jason Pellerin -- who finished out Saturday's game after Kelly was injured -- and true freshman Shea Patterson. Simmons cites "multiple sources close to the situation" who have relayed that the 6-foot-2, 193-pound frosh will earn the call against the Aggies (or at the very least, will play). Patterson was a megastud recruit in the 2016 class, with Rivals tagging him as the No. 3 overall prospect for that cycle. Those in dynasty formats are clean out of luck on the waiver-wire in this case, but traditional leaguers should feel free to scoop up Patterson on a speculative flier.

The Clarion Ledger's Hugh Kellenberger reports that Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly will miss the remainder of the 2016 season with a torn ACL and lateral meniscus in his right knee.

Kellenberger relays that Kelly suffered the severe knee injury during Saturday's win over Georgia Southern. The 6-foot-1, 210-pounder had completed 16-of-23 passes for 226 yards and a touchdown prior to going down injured. Redshirt freshman quarterback Jason Pellegrin came on after Kelly's exit. Pellegrin is likely to start in Swag's place for the remainder of the season (as it were). HC Hugh Freeze is hoping to preserve the redshirt of super-freshman Shea Patterson. As for Kelly, the quarterback will now commence his rehab in the hopes to be in fighting form ahead of the April draft.
Nov 6 - 7:57 PM

Ole Miss senior TE Evan Engram caught four passes for 75 yards and a touchdown in the school's 37-27 win over Georgia Southern.

Engram has scored a touchdown in all but two games this season, and we love that Ole Miss is allowing him to be a focal point of the offense. Engram is far from a traditional tight end, but he is absolutely one of the best receivers in the country in terms of the intermediate are of the field.
Nov 5 - 4:58 PM

Ole Miss senior TE Evan Engram caught nine passes for 95 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 40-29 loss to Auburn.

Engram notched his touchdown early in the contest, hauling in a 15-yard score with a little over four minutes gone in the first quarter. The 6-foot-3, 227-pound senior has put forth the best season of his career in 2016 and could well finish the campaign with more than 1,000 yards receiving. As matters stand through eight games, Engram has caught 49 passes for an even 700 yards and six touchdowns.
