Ole Miss WR Jonathan Mingo to Reportedly Miss Alabama Game
One of Matt Corral's top targets will miss Saturday's huge matchup against Alabama. According to Jon Sokoloff and Chris Bolton of WCBI News in North Mississippi, wide receiver Jonathan Mingo will be out indefinitely with a broken foot.
Through just three games this season, Mingo has recorded 15 catches for 290 yards and three touchdowns, including a six catch 136 yard effort and a touchdown in the Rebels previous game against Tulane.
In last year's matchup, Mingo did not make a big impact against Alabama, recording just one catch for 11 yards. In fact, during the 2020 season, Mingo recorded just 27 total receptions for 379 yards and three touchdowns, but is already nearing those totals through three games in 2021.
Mingo has been the second leading receiver for the Rebels thus far, behind Dontario Drummond, who has recorded 20 catches for 339 yards and four touchdowns so far this season.
Ole Miss comes into the matchup against Alabama having lost the previous five matchups, with their last victory coming via a 43-37 triumph in 2015 at Bryant Denny Stadium led by Chad Kelly, their second straight victory over Alabama after defeating them in Oxford the year before as well.
In trying to break the losing streak, things just got a little bit tougher for the Rebels without one of their top targets. Nonetheless, the Tide are in for a great matchup in Tuscaloosa this weekend.
