MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis Tigers linebacker Jackson Dillon ruffled some feathers in trying to hype up this weekend’s Memphis vs Ole Miss game.

Dillon tweeted a picture of Robert Nkemdiche on the ground during last year’s game. Nkemdiche suffered a concussion after a hit.

Dillion tweeted: “Not only do I knock them out. I pick which play. #GTG Beat Ole Miss”

Dillon later apologized for the Tweet.

Nkemdiche now plays in the NFL.

Jackson is injured and will not play the rest of this season. His teammates will be in Oxford to take on the Rebels on Saturday night.
