OXFORD — Starting safety Johnny Brown left Monday’s practice with a tender hamstring, which was apparently the aggravation of a previous injury.
Coach Houston Nutt said that Brown was racing his cousin in Atlanta for fun when he popped his hamstring.
Despite the injury, Brown thought it had healed well enough to practice on Monday. Turns out he was wrong.
“That’s the only thing I hate about giving them a break,” Nutt said. “They think they’re fast after working all summer, they don’t stretch, and then somebody pops a hamstring.”
