Mizzou Spring Football: James Franklin Progressing, Henry Josey Could Redshirt

The Missouri Tigers have a pair of high-profile injuries to address as spring football winds down. Quarterback James Franklin is going to "heal quick" after undergoing a successful shoulder surgery, says coach Gary Pinkel, while running back Henry Josey still has an operation ahead of him. Pinkel notes Josey still has a redshirt year to spend if need be, but still hopes Franklin will be able to return in time for the season.

Josey shattered his knee late last season after posting some of the country's best rushing numbers. Franklin has been banged up since early in spring ball, when he hurt himself fighting for a loose ball.

It would be mighty fine for Mizzou if both players are able to make full recoveries, whether this year or the next, but it's nice to remember Josey has a year to spare.

Henry Josey Injury Update: Mizzou Star Running Back Has One Surgery To Go

Missouri Tigers running back Henry Josey -- who underwent perhaps the 2011 college football season's most gruesome injury, though this isn't a competition -- is progressing nicely, according to Tigers offensive coordinator David Yost.

Josey, who led the Big 12 in rushing through 10 games, will still need one more surgery to repair his triple-torn knee, but Yost has high hopes:

"He's doing tremendous on his rehab," said Missouri Tigers offensive coordinator David Yost. "He is working as hard in there as our guys working in the weight room to get himself back."

Josey still has a redshirt option to fall back on should he be unable to complete his rehab in time for the 2012 season. With SEC defenses looming, that might not be such a bad thing after all. One way or the other, we should get to see Josey on the field again some day.

Henry Josey Injury: Missouri RB Tears Three Knee Tendons, According To Report

Missouri running back Henry Josey suffered a gruesome leg injury in the Tigers' win over Texas on Saturday afternoon. Josey, the Tigers' leading rusher and workhorse out of the backfield, tore three tendons in his left knee and will be out of action for a significant amount of time as a result.

Earlier reports indicated Josey had suffered some kind of rupture, but it turns out the injury was far worse than anticipated.

Just heard news about Tigers' Henry Josey. Triple tear--ACL, MCL, patellar tendon. Please keep him in your prayers.

Just an absolutely awful injury for any player to have to go through. He'll likely have a long road of rehab ahead after surgery to reconstruct his knee. Thoughts go out to the sophomore as he recovers.

For the season, Josey had 1,149 yards and nine touchdowns on 134 attempts for the Tigers, an average of 8.9 yards per carry.

Henry Josey Injury: Ruptured Tendon Could End Season For Missouri Running Back

The Missouri Tigers have quite a few options on the offensive side of the ball, as Saturday's victory over the Texas Longhorns detailed, but running back Henry Josey will seemingly no longer be one of them. The sophomore went down in the third quarter with a serious knee injury that could keep him out for the remainder of the college football season.

The running back was planting to make a cut along the left sideline before his knee gave out. The early diagnosis, courtesy of the Kansas City Star's Mike DeArmond, is not good.

Orthodepic surgeon Dr. Pat Smith just told me Henry Josey is "Done. Done for the year." Ruptured tendon in left knee. Will still have an MRI.

Josey carried the ball 134 times this season for 1,149 yards and nine touchdowns prior to the injury. Considering he was averaging nearly nine yards per carry, it will be nearly impossible for Mizzou to replace one of their biggest big-play threats.
