Hugh Kellenberger of the Jackson Clarion-Ledger reported on the unfortunate development for the Rebels, with ESPN's Edward Aschoff noting that it may have been a pulled hamstring:

Robert Nkemdiche is walking offf, and is heavily favoring that left leg. Big, big loss for Ole Miss.

Kellenberger confirmed that, noting that Nkemdiche was questionable to come back into the game:

Robert Nkemdiche has strained his hamstring, we're told. He is "questionable" to return.
