Ole Miss DE Hardy out for season with broken wrist

OXFORD, MS (AP) – Ole Miss defensive end Greg Hardy is out for the season with a broken left wrist.

School spokesman Daniel Snowden says Hardy will have surgery Thursday in Jackson and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

The 6-foot-5, 275-pound Millington, Tenn., native hurt his arm earlier this season, then aggravated the injury last weekend against Northern Arizona. He'll have a screw placed in the wrist during surgery.

Once considered one of the most dangerous defensive players in the nation, Hardy has been limited by injuries in his final two seasons. A broken foot cost him four games last season and parts of several others. He appeared ready for his senior year but sprained his ankle in the opener and hasn't been much of a factor.
