Starting CB one of a pair of Rebels unavailable for the spring


A very significant piece of Ole Miss’ secondary puzzle will be unavailable for the whole of spring practice, Houston Nutt announced Saturday.

According to the head coach, starting cornerback Marcus Temple will not participate at all in the spring sessions that begin March 28.  Temple has been hampered by a sports hernia, the coach said.

Temple has appeared in 37 games during his Rebels career, including 12 starts in 2010.

In addition to Temple, offensive lineman Michael Brown will be a non-participant for the entire spring.  Brown has a disc problem in his back.
