Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson will miss the rest of the season with a torn right PCL, a team spokesperson announced Sunday morning.
Patterson hurt his right knee during the second quarter and didn’t play the final series of the first half in a 40-24 loss to No. 24 LSU. He returned in the second half, but completed just 10 of 23 passes for 116 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions.
Ole Miss interim coach Matt Luke said after the game Patterson had a sprained knee. But the Rebels did a MRI Saturday night and the tests revealed Patterson had a torn PCL.
Junior college transfer Jordan Ta’amu, who led Ole Miss on two scoring drives against LSU, is expected to take over as starting quarterback.
