Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell fractures leg against Auburn
Ole Miss receiver Laquon Treadwell suffered a gruesome leg injury late in the Rebels' loss to Auburn. "It's definitely a fracture," head coach Hugh Freeze said after the game, according to SI.com's Pete Thamel.
Treadwell caught a screen pass with 1:30 left to play and was pulled down from behind just as he was about to cross the goal line. The play was originally ruled a touchdown, appearing to give the Rebels the lead. The call was overturned after a video review and ruled a fumble, with a recovery by Auburn.
Ole Miss had only two timeouts remaining, allowing Auburn to run out the majority of the time left on the clock. The Rebels did get the ball back for one final possession with 26 seconds left but were unable to score.
Treadwell had 10 catches for 103 yards and touchdown in Saturday's game. He leads the Rebels with 38 receptions and 529 yards this season.
