OXFORD, Miss. — Mississippi quarterback Chad Kelly will miss the rest of the season after tearing the ACL and lateral meniscus in his right knee.
The 6-foot-2 senior was hurt Saturday in the Rebels’ victory over Georgia Southern. The school announced the injury following Kelly’s MRI on Sunday, and said he would have surgery this week.
Kelly, who played for Red Lion during his freshman and sophomore seasons in high school, has thrown for a Southeastern Conference-leading 2,758 yards, 19 touchdown and eight interceptions this season. He threw for more than 4,000 yards as a junior and led Ole Miss to a Sugar Bowl win over Oklahoma State.
