Shea Patterson’s season may be over, but the Ole Miss quarterback’s recovery process has not been completely set.
Patterson’s injured right knee will be immobilized for the next 2-3 weeks, and then another X-ray will be taken to determine surgery options, Rebels coach Matt Luke told reporters, including Antonio Morales of The Clarion-Ledger, at his Monday press conference.
Luke also said that Patterson’s recovery process should take 3-4 months.
