The difference between hurt and injured

The Rebels are banged up going into the Auburn game, no secret there.

Hugh Freeze has talked about the importance of pain tolerance for many of his players this week.

Tight end Evan Engram says the “day to day” list laid out by Freeze earlier this week is no big deal. Getting players on the field is all the matters and that the pain tolerance part of the equation is something players can handle.

Good answer from Engram here on the pain tolerance question when he talks about what players say is the difference between being hurt and being injured.

Wide receiver Laquon Treadwell wasn’t on Freeze’s day to day list, but Treadwell talks a little bit about a hand injury in this video.

Like Engram, he doesn’t believe pain will be a distraction Saturday night. You don’t really feel pain, Treadwell says, until you’re off the field.

There could be opportunities for both Engram and Treadwell as Auburn likes to play a lot of man coverage in the secondary.

The Tigers give up a lot of passing yards — next to last in the SEC with 242 yards per game allowed — but they’re also tied for second in the SEC with 13 interceptions. Kentucky also has 13 picks, and Ole Miss leads with 17.

    PA…no audio on these vids.

      Beeze, the audio works on my laptop for me and also on Youtube. I’m not seeing a problem.

        I tried it again and still no audio (on your web page) and mysteriously, there is no volume button on the video players.
        I don’t know. I tried it…using both Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. The last time I reported this problem to you, you fixed it and I was able to get the audio.
        Yes, it works on youtube. Thanks anyway…

          My video player shows controls, audio and others, at the bottom when I drag the cursor over the video. Tech issues are not my strength but glad to help when I can.

            Strange…no audio control when I use Internet Explorer, but when I use Google chrome I do get the audio control. Oh well, must be on my end. I’ll do some research. 🙂
