Robert Nkemdiche Injury: Updates on Ole Miss DE's Hamstring, Likely Return Date
Ole Miss star defensive end Robert Nkemdiche exited Saturday's game against the AP No. 9 Texas A&M Aggies with a hamstring injury.
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.— Hugh Kellenberger (@HKellenbergerCL) October 13, 2013
Robert Nkemdiche being helped off the field. Looked like he pulled a hammy chasing Manziel. Headed to the training table #TAMUvsMISS— Edward Aschoff (@AschoffESPN) October 13, 2013
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.— Hugh Kellenberger (@HKellenbergerCL) October 13, 2013
Robert Nkemdiche implies he is ready to play again:
So excited to get back on that field !!!!— Robert Nkemdiche (@Aceboogie_001) November 4, 2013
From College Football Talk's Kevin McGuire:
Still healing from a hamstring suffered while trying to track down Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel on the run, Ole Miss super freshman Robert Nkemdiche will sit out at least one more week.
Nkemdiche sat out against LSU last weekend — Ole Miss upset the Tigers with a last-second field goal — and he could be sitting out the next few weeks as well.
UPDATE: Monday, Oct. 14
From David Brandt of The Associated Press:
Ole Miss hurting pretty bad on defense. Freeze says Robert Nkemdiche (hammy) out for LSU. About half of defense is questionable.— David Brandt (@davidbrandtAP) October 14, 2013
Chasing down Aggies reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel is difficult enough, but Ole Miss will be hard-pressed to do so if Roberts Nkemdiche is unable to return to action.
Nkemdiche is a true freshman, headlined a highly touted Rebels recruiting class and was the No. 1 overall prospect of the 2013 crop, according to 247Sports.com.
This is indeed a big blow to an Ole Miss defense that desperately needs its rising star to stop the bleeding of its current two-game losing streak. A third straight loss in the SEC would force the Rebels to close the season strong to clinch a bid in a decent bowl game.
