Short and sweet during the open week. About 12 minutes from the podium for Freeze, the quickest he’s been this year.
He did mention that he expects to get most of his wounded players back for the Nov. 9 game against Arkansas — which has been announced by the way as an 11:21 kick.
Freeze said he’s confident Mike Hilton will be back. Denzel Nkemdiche is expected back. The Rebels may get Robert Nkemdiche back but won’t know more about that until a week from today, Freeze said.
Issac Gross and Charles Sawyer will be held out of work this week.
He’s been really pleased with Bryon Bennett’s two games at end, and it’s not a sure bet that Bennett will return to tackle when Nkemdiche is back and the Rebels are healthier at end.
Freeze also said that freshman RB Mark Dodson “will get a look” this week during the open date.
Jeff Scott, like Robert Nkemdiche, is a guy who’s health question will be answered more clearly in a week. Like Bennett and the DL, it’s not exactly clear what Scott’s return will mean for the running back picture.
