The pair were released later that evening and their status was addressed Wednesday as Ole Miss’ interim head coach Matt Luke held a pre-camp press conference. Luke announced both players are suspended for the season opener against South Alabama and will have to perform community service. Both players were listed as starters at SEC Media Days.
Webster was thought off highly by the Ole Miss defensive staff entering last season but suffered a season ending knee injury early in the opener against Florida State.
Bing-Dukes is a junior college transfer who had redshirted at Georgia in 2014. He struggled to adapt to SEC play last year, but was named Ole Miss’ most improved player after spring practice earlier this year.
Given the depth (or lack thereof) for the Rebels at linebacker, true freshman Mohamed Sanogo and redshirt freshman Donta Evans could get significant playing time against South Alabama.
