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.
