Robert Nkemdiche Leaves Game with Apparent Hamstring Injury
The Ole Miss Rebels are going against the Texas A&M Aggies, but now they may have to play the rest of their game without freshman defensive end Robert Nkemdiche.
Nkemdiche was trying to get to Johnny Manziel, who was escaping the pocket. The defensive end went down, according to Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports, holding his leg.

Hugh Kellenberger from the Jackson Clarion-Ledger reports that it appears to be a hamstring injury.
Robert Nkemdiche has strained his hamstring, we're told. He is "questionable" to return.— Hugh Kellenberger (@HKellenbergerCL) October 13, 2013
The true freshman out of Logansville, Georgia was the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2013 class. The Rebels had an incredibly successful recruiting class, bringing in three five-star and nine four-star recruits for this year.
Losing Nkemdiche is a huge loss for this defense, especially in a game like this. The Rebels need someone that can disrupt plays in the backfield and give Manziel trouble in the pocket. He has the potential to be a big star one day in college football, and the Rebels will have to find ways to make up for his absence if he misses the rest of the game.
