We were extremely close to having another Orlando Brown moment on our hands.
Ole Miss defensive lineman C.J. Johnson was chasing down Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron when his face had a close encounter with a ref’s flag. The flag managed to find its way into Johnson’s right eye and at first it didn’t look good. He laid on the ground in pain for a few minutes and was forced to the sidelines.
Luckily he was able to return to the game shortly after.
