Dex Could Be Back

This story has been released by the Clarion Ledger this afternoon and should be in the paper tomorrow. This is good news for the Rebs to see McCluster back on the field. He will be a big addition to the receiving group that has surprised me thus far this year with the plays they have made. He will also be a big asset to special teams should he be able to return kickoffs for the Rebs.

(C-L)OXFORD — Ole Miss receiver Dexter McCluster was back on the practice field today, but coach Ed Orgeron wasn’t ready to say the sophomore will be ready for Saturday’s game at Georgia.“We’re going to see what happens,” Orgeron said. “That’s always a day-by-day deal.”McCluster has missed four games with a shoulder injury, which he sustained a week before the season opener. He hasn’t played in Ole Miss’ past 10 games, dating back to the Oct. 7, 2006 game against Vanderbilt.McCluster is regarded as one of Ole Miss’ offensive playmakers and could bolster a group that has been the team’s biggest surprise. Orgeron said McCluster practiced in a yellow, non-contact jersey and his status will be monitored throughout the week.“We think he’s going to play this Saturday, but we don’t know yet,” Orgeron said. “He was still in the yellow shirt today.”
