A tough season for Ole Miss just took another hit.

Thought to be a contender in the SEC this year, the Ole Miss Rebels have had a rough go in 2016. The Rebels, to this point, are 4-5 with bowl eligibility being in question now with only a few games left in their season.

The chances of making a bowl game have thinned up a bit according ta a report from Chuck Rounsaville of Scout.com. Rounsaville is reporting that Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly is downed with a knee injury and will miss the remainder of the 2016 season.

Hugh Kellenberger of the Jackson Clarion-Ledger corroborated the report later on and stated that Kelly tore his ACL and lateral meniscus.

Up to this point, Kelly had amassed 2,758 yards, 19 TD and 9 INT on the year with a completion percentage of 62.3 percent. Needless to say, this is a tough blow for both Ole Miss and Kelly, who was set to graduate and head to the NFL Draft next spring. Best of luck to him in recovery.
