-- BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Mississippi quarterback Chad Kelly,?the nephew of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, went onto the field after a brawl erupted at his brother's high school football game in upstate New York on Friday night.
The brawl happened during a game between his brother Casey's team, St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute, and Bishop Timon-St. Jude High School on Friday night. Buffalo police suspended the game. There have been no reports of arrests.
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze told The Associated Press that he talked with Kelly by phone since the game, and that the quarterback was back at home with his parents. The Rebels are off this week don't play again until Oct. 15 at Arkansas.
"From the version I've heard, he didn't do anything to anybody. They were pulling him back because he gets emotional," Freeze said. "I probably would too if that were my family."
Freeze said he's isn't planning any discipline for Kelly, but is working to gather more details.
The scuffle began after Chad's brother, Casey Kelly, took a late hit, their mother, Charlene, told ESPN's Greg Ostendorf. At that point, Bishop Timon-St. Jude team players were "stomping on Case and throwing haymakers," Charlene Kelly said.
Casey Kelly's teammates saw the hit, and the brawl ensued. According to Charlene Kelly, Chad ran onto the field to make sure his brother was OK. Video shows Chad Kelly being restrained by several coaches.
Two years ago, Chad Kelly was arrested after a bar fight, eventually pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. The Buffalo native is in his second season at Ole Miss after stops at Clemson and junior college at East Mississippi.
