The Ole Miss football team was blown out by LSU, 40-24, dropping the Rebels’ record to 3-4 on the season.
But not only did the loss to the Tigers impact Ole Miss’ record, it reportedly has made a big impact on the remainder of the season for the Rebels offense.
According to a report from 247 Sports, starting quarterback Shea Patterson will miss the remainder of the season with a torn PCL.
Patterson suffered his injury in the first half of Saturday’s loss, but managed to return to the field to play in the third and fourth quarters. However, after the game, an MRI revealed the ligament damage in his right knee.
Without Patterson, junior Jordan Ta’amu will step in under center.
Patterson was having a solid 2017 campaign, recording an SEC leading 2,259 passing yards to go along with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions at the time of his injury.
Next up for the Rebels is home game against Arkansas on Saturday, Oct. 28.
