Head coach Ed Orgeron announced Monday that starting right tackle Austin Deculus is "doubtful" this week vs. Ole Miss.

Deculus suffered an injury vs. Alabama and had to come out but was able to return and finish the game. While he was out, left guard Adrian Magee moved to right tackle and Ed Ingram went in at left guard.

Orgeron said backup tackle Badara Traore will play at right tackle if Deculus is out and that they will "experiment with Adrian Magee at left tackle."

Q. A number of your players just kind of went out for short stints against Alabama, but I guess now what is the overall health of the team after a big game like that?

ED ORGERON: We're about as healthy as we have been. Austin Deculus is going to be doubtful this week. Other than that we'll be fine.

Q. If Deculus is out, did you like what you saw from Magee at tackle?

ED ORGERON: I think we're going to put Bedard at right tackle and we're going to experiment with Magee at left tackle and put Ed at guard.
Orgeron also said that Dare Rosenthal will not be available vs. the Rebels, missing his second straight game.

Q. Is Dare Rosenthal healthy or available?

ED ORGERON: Dare Rosenthal will not be available this game.
Orgeron did not comment on whether or not Saahdiq Charles will be available. Charles has sat out four games this due to what Orgeron has called a "coach's decisions" but did play vs. Alabama.

Charles needs to play to protect our asset. He can be disciplined in other ways.
