Morris talks rehab

Ole Miss guard Aaron Morris is making good progress from the ACL he tore in last year’s season opener at Vanderbilt.

He’s expected to be ready in August, and while he sounds pleased with his progress, he’s uncertain exactly what a comeback entails.

He’s spoken with teammates who have gone through the process, but he also uses the word “scary” to describe what he thinks his first contact will be like when the time comes.


Morris figures to plug in at one of the guards. He’s an example of why the Ole Miss offensive line may look drastically different game week against Boise State than it does in spring drills.

There’s an on-going competition at center that may not be settled this spring, and junior college transfer Fahn Cooper, who isn’t here right now, will compete for the starting job at right tackle.

Lots of moving parts on a group trying to improve its numbers in short-yardage rushing and pass protection.
