OXFORD – Ole Miss was back on the practice field for two workouts on Wednesday, and freshman running back Kailo Moore was a part of the action if only in a limited capacity.
Internet conversation over the weekend had suggested that Moore might possibly be leaving the program.
A speedy four-star recruit from West Bolivar High School, Moore had been out of action since sustaining a concussion in the middle of the first week.
He went through non-contact work on Wednesday, and Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said if no red flags appeared in continued concussion testing that Moore could be full speed when the Rebels practice this morning.
There are a number of young players competing for snaps at running back, but Moore’s speed gives him a chance to get on the field.
Elsewhere, freshman Robert Nkemdiche and junior C.J. Johnson have been the starting defensive ends for the last week. Both were held out of Wednesday’s work, a move Freeze described as precautionary.
Senior Charles Sawyer, the projected starter at the boundary cornerback, has done nothing more than light conditioning work since the start of camp as he works back from surgery on his rotator cuff and meniscus.
Sawyer is expected back Monday.
Junior Senquez Golson, the projected starter at field cornerback, remains out with a hamstring pull.
The Rebels’ final two-a-day workout session is scheduled for Friday.
