Engram’s recovery

I enjoyed speaking to the Ole Miss quarterback club last night.

I spoke mostly on the LSU-Ole Miss game from a few weeks ago, Hugh Freeze’s first signature win. Football season gets to moving pretty fast, but some games you need to slow down and talk about.

That was another memorable one int he Ole Miss-LSU rivalry.

Tight ends coach Maurice Harris also spoke and told the group that it’s possible that freshman tight end Evan Engram could play in the bowl game.

Engram has been since that LSU game with a sprained ankle that was thought would end his season. It might, but there appears to be hope for the bowl game. That would be a good experience for Engram, who was a vital part of the offense with 20 catches for 265 yards and three touchdowns when he went out.

Harris also spoke about the staff’s efforts to use wide receiver Donte Moncrief to do some of the things that Engram was doing. They’re being careful with Moncrief, Harris said. “Do you want Donte blocking against those defensive ends? I don’t.”

    That would be special if Evan could return in time to play in a bowl game. He deserves that opportunity and I hope he gets the chance.
