The vaunted “land-shark” defense at Ole Miss took a hit on Tuesday when it was announced that senior defensive tackle Issac Gross would have season-ending neck surgery.

Gross played in the Rebels’ 76-3 victory over UT-Martin but plans to take a redshirt this season and return for a fifth year at Ole Miss, according to reports.

The defensive tackle started six games for Ole Miss last season and earned a reputation as an underrated, yet important part of the nation’s No. 1 scoring defense.
