2013 Spring Practice Schedule

OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss put on the pads for the first time this spring and went through a two-hour workout in the Indoor Practice Facility Wednesday morning.

Head coach Hugh Freeze said the defense looked good during Wednesday’s drills, but they received some bad news when rising junior defensive end C.J. Johnson went down with a broken fibula.

“Injuries are a part of the game,” Freeze said. “We sure hate it for the kids. C.J. has a fracture in his leg. We’ll get that thing fixed this week and get him back on the way to recovery.”

Johnson is expected to have surgery on Thursday.

Freeze addressed the depth at different positions on the team, saying that there is good, developing depth at linebacker, secondary and running back, while positions that are still thin include the defensive front, offensive line and receiver.

He mentioned defensive tackle Woodrow Hamilton, defensive back/wide receiver Quadarias Mireles and defensive end Carlos Thompson as players that have stood out and look improved during the first three spring practices.

“Woody has a chance to be really talented. Q. Mireles was impressive today. He doesn’t know what he’s doing, but he’s what we thought he was when we signed him. Carlos Thompson has done some better things. That year of redshirting really helped him.”

“It’s day three. It’s still early,” Freeze added. “For the first day of pads, I thought it was a pretty good day.”

The Rebels’ fourth spring practice is scheduled for Friday at 8 a.m.

All spring practices are open to the public. Use of cell phones and cameras are prohibited for fans at practice, and fans must remain in the designated area. Fans are not allowed between the practice fields.
