What was excitement for a 16-3 halftime lead over Texas A&M for Ole Miss turned into a scary moment this past Saturday when backup offensive lineman Christian Morris collapsed coming off the field.
On Monday, coach Hugh Freeze said Morris sustained a spinal cord contusion.
Morris, who was on the field as a part of the Rebels field goal unit when time expired in the first half, began shouting about a pain in his neck, according to Holly Rowe of ESPN. Morris was then taken to the hospital.
The 6-foot-6, 313-pound sophomore tweeted his appreciation for thoughts and prayers on Sunday.
Freeze said there is no timetable for Morris’ return.
