Today’s SEC coaches teleconference did not produce any real clarity on the health of Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace.
Rebels coach Hugh Freeze said, “He’s been limited some, but you would have to chain him down to keep him from going in this game. He’s getting better every do, so I anticipate him being ready to go.”
That’s not much change from Monday’s update.
Regardless of chains, Freeze would not play Wallace if it was going to endanger the player’s health.
Freeze has said he expects Wallace to play, so there won’t be quite the drama there was last year with Mississippi State and the health of Dak Prescott. The question for Wallace will be how can he escape pressure, plant and throw?
MSU coach Dan Mullen went to Prescott late in the game, and he scored the winning touchdown. Ole Miss never took control of the game and allowed that to happen.
It sounds like Wallace will start. That will require Freeze and his training staff to keep a close watch on the ankle to see how it’s holding up through the game.
Ole Miss tight end Evan Engram was also tight-lipped about Wallace’s practice week on Tuesday when he said he wasn’t going to “get into details” about his quarterback.
