Ole Miss appears to have avoided a bad injury development.
Rebels coach Hugh Freeze said Tuesday that safety Deontay Anderson, a former four-star recruit, sustained a fractured bone in his hand Sunday, but the player isn’t expected to miss time. Davis Potter of The Oxford Eagle was there to relay the news:

Anderson, who’s 6-foot-1, 192 pounds, was rated as the No. 2 safety for the class of 2016, as ranked by 247Sports. The native of Manvel, Texas, considered Texas A&M, Alabama and LSU, among others, before settling on Ole Miss.
