One of the top draft eligible safties in the nation, Ole Miss Rebels defensive back Tony Conner, will be forced to sit on the sidelines for the next few weeks after suffering an injury during the team’s big win over Alabama.
Conner suffered a torn meniscus that will require surgery. He is set to go under the knife on Tuesday.
Tony Conner out for a minimum of four weeks due to meniscus tear in a knee, surgery tomorrow. Justin Bell (questionable).

With Conner on the sidelines, it is expected that A.J. Moore will step into the starting lineup.
