Engram done for the year

Freshman tight end Evan Engram is done for the year after sustaining a high ankle sprain against LSU last night.

Engram will have surgery to correct the injury, the school just said in a text message. No date for the surgery was announced.

Engram had two catches for 28 yards in the game, one for 22 yards.

The Rebels lost three senior tight ends from the 2012 team and signed three, but Engram has been the only one to make an impact. AJ Jackson didn’t qualify, and Christian Morgan has battled injuries.

At his early August presser before the start of practice Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze talked about the need to get Engram ready to play, and Engram showed his athleticism early in practice.

He quickly became a favorite target of Bo Wallace and finishes his freshman season with 20 catches for 265 yards and three touchdowns.

    Surgery for an ankle sprain? That’s new to me. Get well soon Evan.

      Weird. Haven’t heard of a surgery even for a high ankle sprain. Usually it’s a lingering issue for sometimes a month but non surgical.

    Rest assured…Coach Freeze will have an answer. Nick Parker could step up and fill that role.
    Let’s wish Evan a speedy recovery.
