With the 2018 Ole Miss football season now less than two weeks away the Rebels will be adjusting their practice schedules to the regular season routine.
As the Rebels prepare in fall camp for the 2018 Ole Miss football season the news out of Oxford has been good. Players are hitting the practice field with good attitudes and are working hard to make the Rebels the best they can be for the 2018 Ole Miss football season. There have been a lot of players, both young and veteran, who have stepped up and are scrapping for spots on the depth chart at their respective positions.
The word throughout camp has been positive so far. The Longo offense is clearly going to be as good as Rebels fans are expecting and news from fall camp is the defense should be much more improved from last season. Of course, most of us expect the Ole Miss offense to be the best in the SEC and one of the top offenses in the nation. The Ole Miss offense has two 2018 Preseason All-Americans in AJ Brown and Greg Little are also selected as Preseason All-SEC First Team.
With less than two weeks until the season opener, the Rebels have reached the point in fall camp where they are on a regular season practice schedule. Rebels players begin classes Monday at Ole Miss and the practices have been modified to a ‘normal’ practice routine. The past weekend marked the end of a terrific fall camp and now the Rebels can really begin to focus on the season at hand. Of course, first up is the season opener against Texas Tech on September 1.

After having Friday as a mandatory off day the Rebels were back on the field Saturday for a scrimmage in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The practice was closed to the media and not much has been known about how the scrimmage went. There was a clear focus by the staff to get thru the Rebels scrimmage without any major injuries.
So far thru fall camp the Rebels have managed to dodge any major injuries. While there have been some players dealing with more minor injuries the Rebels fall camp was relatively injury free which is always good. AJ Brown, Javien Hamilton and Ken Webster have been battling minor hamstring issues but all three were expected back in practice today at some level.
Also dealing with minor injuries are DaMarkus Lodge (rolled ankle), Royce Newman (pulled muscle) and Vernon Dasher (groin). All were expected back today. Of course, even though the Rebels have escaped any major injuries there has been one of a more serious nature. Sincere David sprained his MCL last week but the staff reports he will only be out for about two weeks. We do expect all of the aforementioned Rebels to be ready for the season opener. As of today there were no other significant injuries from the Rebels fall camp. Now we get to see if the Rebels can remain injury free thru the regular practices.
