Ole Miss Loses Sawyer to Injury

Posted by Robby Donoho | August 06, 2012 / 02:41pm | College Sports, Local Sports
OXFORD, Miss. (WCBI/AP) -- Ole Miss defensive back Charles Sawyer has a torn quadriceps muscle and will likely miss at least a month before returning.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound junior was one of the best players on last year's team, leading the Rebels with four interceptions and also making 70 tackles. Coach Hugh Freeze said Sawyer was injured during Sunday's practice and is likely out four to six weeks. He didn't specify which leg Sawyer injured.

The Rebels also lost sophomore receiver Collins Moore to a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Freeze said Moore's injury will need surgery eventually, but that he would first try to rehabilitate the shoulder and play through the pain instead of opting for season-ending surgery.
