OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi receiver Donte Moncrief says quarterback Bo Wallace's surgically repaired arm looks better than ever.
Moncrief says he saw "an arm that's gotten stronger" on Friday morning during Wallace's first team workout since he had surgery to repair his throwing shoulder in January. The 6-foot-4, 204-pound junior's health is vitally important to the Rebels' hopes of improving on last year's 7-6 record.
Second-year coach Hugh Freeze says Wallace went through Friday's closed practice with no problems, though his total throws were limited as he works back into shape.
Wallace said he had some soreness in his biceps, but the surgically-repaired areas felt good. He threw for 2,994 yards, 22 touchdowns and 17 interceptions last season.
Ole Miss returns eight offensive starters and all 11 defensive starters.
