OXFORD, Miss. — Mississippi receiver Laquon Treadwell is out for the season after breaking his left fibula and dislocated his ankle in the No. 4 Rebels’ 35-31 loss to No. 3 Auburn on Saturday night.
Ole Miss spokesman Kyle Campbell confirmed the extent of the injury and said Treadwell had surgery late Saturday night.
Treadwell (a 6-foot-2, 229-pound sophomore) was injured trying to score the go-ahead touchdown in the final minutes of the game.
Treadwell is the team’s leading receiver this season and caught 10 passes for 103 yards and a touchdown Saturday.
Ole Miss (7-2, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) has lost two consecutive games.
