Despite primarily playing defense, Nkemdiche was injured while rushing the ball in an attempt to convert a short yardage situation for the Rebels. The defensive tackle has asked head coach Hugh Freeze not to remove him from the offensive game plan, despite his injury.
The junior lineman has 17 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks and four quarterback hurries through the first seven games of the season.
