Your favorite Ole Miss defensive big man Benito Jones had a bit of an injury scare during Saturday’s Meet the Rebels scrimmage, after taking a shot to the back and needing to go the hospital for X-Rays.
Big Benito apparently suffered a rough as hell hit to the spine in the day’s scrimmage, went to the hospital for examination, and turned out fine. We hope. This guy is a pivotal man in Ole Miss’ defensive pass rush, and he’s a pillar of the Rebs’ front four.
Initial reports said that he still had feeling in his lower extremities, a severely worrying prospect in any case.
Later on Saturday evening, Jones’ mother confirmed that he was more or less okay, though his timetable for return to full contact drills remains somewhat dubious.
