Johnson done for the year

Defensive end C.J. Johnson will have surgery on his ankle and will miss the remainder of the season, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said.

Johnson will be eligible for a medical redshirt which would give him two seasons remaining at Ole Miss.

He has struggled with injuries most of this season going back to spring drills when he sustained a broken leg. After working his way back from that it was a severely sprained ankle that kept him out of the Auburn and Texas A&M games.

He has appeared in four games with 12 tackles, four tackles for loss and two pressures. His best game this season was at Texas where he had five tackles and three tackles for loss.

A junior from Philadelphia, Johnson began the season with 87 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks for his career. He had 6.5 sacks last year to lead the team.

    Parrish, he can still get medical redshirt after being in 4 games. What are the rules for this? That would be great if he can.

      That’s exactly what I was wondering??? What ARE the rules? How come Aaron Morris wasn’t able to RS but C.J. is? What gives?

  • REB

    He will work his way back. He’s a fighter

    What message is Kennedy sending his team…it’s okay to mess with weed and cocaine, along with run ins with the police…as long as you’re a maximum high volume shooter..it’s ridiculous.

      Cid, If someone didn’t mess with weed and cocaine you wouldn’t be here.

        G.O.C.R,…Are you saying that I work for the D.E.A. ? If I did or do, I would not divulge such intelligence. You’re speculation as to my employment is close, though.

          How do you get employment out of that?

        • The Ghost of Col. Reb

          I’m pretty sure you do NOT have a college degree. You would have to have a college degree to work for the DEA. If you did have a college degree you would know the correct use of “You’re”, which is short for you are. So, YOUR sentence above reads, “You are speculation as to my employment is close, though.” You may be a snitch, but you aren’t DEA.

    That’s a good question Killer_Beeze. I thought Morris is going to get a Medical RS?

  • Cid Riley

    Someone must have the wrong school that is getting caught left and right in probation problems. It’s the troll’s MI$$ $TATE CASH MONEY DOGS. All you can wonder is what in the world are they going to get caught at next?
