FOOTBALL: Quick notes from presser

Defensive end Greg Hardy returned to practice on Sunday. Remember, Sunday is a day of walking and jogging in shorts and helmets, basically working out the soreness from the day before. Tuesday is the first day of the week in pads.

Hardy will be on the field Tuesday. It will be after Tuesday and later into the week before it becomes clearer what his availability might be for Vanderbilt, but right now things look good. The determining factor will be what kind of soreness he experiences after a full-pad workout.

If the news is good later in the week, Hardy could get a few plays Saturday against Vanderbilt. …

Sophomore strong safety Fon Ingram had four tackles against Samford and was about to see his role increase on special teams as well as regular defense before his early Sunday morning DUI. At present, Ingram is suspended for this game only.

Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt said sophomore Johnny Brown, currently the No. 2 free safety, and senior Terrell Jackson are candidates to spell starter Jamarca Sanford if necessary. …

Nutt cited the play of receivers Lionel Breaux and Markeith Summers against Samford. Breaux had three catches and got more action than he might have thought going in when Dexter McCluster missed some time during the game. McCluster eventually returned after having X-rays on his ribs. …

No other injury news …

Vanderbilt has won two of the last three meetings against Ole Miss, and Nutt is 1-1 against the Commodores. …

    Well, I just hope Hardy is ready to go full speed next week in Gainesville. What we have to do this week is stop the run and I’m not sure that Greg will make all that much of a difference in that arena.

    I hate to talk about turnovers and mistakes being a key to any game, but the Rebs have to be ready to play a Vanderbilt team that hasn’t made many mistakes in their first three games.

    If we don’t shoot ourselves in the foot like we have the past two weeks (i.e. untimely penalties and turnovers), I feel that we are a couple of scores better than this Vandy team. Vandy has been succesfull so far because they have been able to control the football and take advantage of opponents’ miscues.

    The gameplan should be simple this week: Stop the run and don’t be a bonehead.

    PA, thanks for the update. Great reporting. I have heard that Vandy have some injuries, LB for one, but he will probably be able to play against OM. Could be a Vandy running attack against OM. Think Snead will show Vandy an air attack that they never seen in Eli.

    Regardless, as what some say, Vandy is and has been a thorn in OM side. We will definitely see this again this week-end. My prediction as of now is OM 27 Vandy 24. Leave this prediction open for future changes.
