Ole Miss tight end to have season-ending ankle surgery

(WMC-TV) - The Ole Miss Rebels are coming to grips with another injury as they approach their game against the Idaho Vandals Saturday.

Tight end Evan Engram is scheduled to have season-ending surgery on his left ankle.

Engram caught two passes for 28 yards in Ole Miss' 27-24 upset victory over LSU.

Ole Miss Head Coach Hugh Freeze continues dealing with injuries to front line players, and continues to find quality replacements, like former Ridgeway High School star Jaylen Walton.

The sophomore runningback had his first 100 yard game, and scored two touchdowns in the win over the Bayou Bengals.

Next up for Ole Miss are the Idaho Vandals on Saturday at Vaught Hemingway Stadium in Oxford. Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m.
