With less than two weeks until the Ole Miss Rebels take on the Boise State Broncos in the Georgia Dome, The Rebels were on the practice fields Friday morning to close out the last of two-a-day practices.
Coach Hugh Freeze stated that the team focused on covering every possible game scenario and worked to clean up mistakes made in earlier scrimmages. It was a good practice, Freeze said.
Junior defensive tackle Issac Gross was held out of practice today due to a neck injury. The coaches are giving him a couple days to heal..
Ryan Buchanan and Devante Kincade spoke about their improvement throughout the 2014 summer camp. Freeze believes both players bring unique strengths to the backup QB position and will be big assets to the team this season.
Another player update: defensive end CJ Johnson is back and is ready to take the field against Boise State.
The finally healthy Rebel pass-rush defense should be a top contender in the SEC this season.
Here is what Freeze and players had to say today:
