By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Ole Miss Rebels freshman tight end Damarcus Thomas has been airlifted to a Memphis hospital. Thomas was injured during practice on Monday.

Thomas had no feeling in his lower body at one point after being injured. However, as he was being placed in the helicopter, he was able to regain some movement.

“Following the injury at practice this morning, Demarcus traveled by ambulance to Baptist Memorial Hospital in Oxford and was airlifted from there to Memphis Regional Medical Center,” Assistance Athletic Director for Sports Medicine Pat Jernigan said in a statement. “Evaluations have been positive at this point. He has regained movement in all of his extremities, and the physicians are optimistic.”

It’s not clear as to the severity of his injuries.

“Obviously, hopefully, this is some severe stinger,” Rebels first-year head coach Lane Kiffin. “I did ask them, the medical staff. They said that does happen sometimes. I’m just praying that that’s somehow what it is.”

Thomas has appeared in five of the team’s six games this season. However, he has not registered a statistic.
