Denzel Nkemdiche in ICU after being found Monday

The Ole Miss Rebels had a pretty scary experience earlier this week and they are still dealing with it today. It looks like one of their star linebackers has been in the hospital with an undisclosed illness since Monday.

Linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche was found unconscious on Monday after he didn’t report to the football facility for practice. He was rushed to the hospital and has remained in ICU since, but is luckily conscious at this point.

There has been no news of exactly why Nkemdiche was hospitalized at this point, but there will surely be more to come as it becomes available. Nkemdiche is currently listed as questionable for Saturday’s game against LSU.
