Ole Miss offensive lineman Aaron Morris will miss the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl after tearing the ACL in his left knee.

Coach Hugh Freeze said Morris suffered a partial tear prior to the regular-season finale against Mississippi State, but wanted to play through the injury. However, Morris and the coaching staff ultimately decided to have the surgery before the bowl game so Morris, a junior, could be ready for the 2015 season.

This is the second time Morris has torn his left ACL. He missed most of the 2013 season after the first injury.
