MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Mississippi’s Robert Nkemdiche left Saturday’s game against Memphis in the second quarter because of a possible head injury.

Ole Miss said Nkemdiche’s return was questionable.

The 6-foot-5, 296-pound Nkemdiche, who usually plays defensive tackle, was injured while running the ball in a short-yardage situation. He’s been used several times on offense this season and scored three touchdowns.
