Missouri has permanently suspended running back Derrick Washington in the wake of his recent assault charge.  According to Dave Matter of the Columbia Tribune, Washington's Missouri career is over.

Looks like it's safe to release Washington at this point.  Expect Kendial Lawrence to get first crack at the starting gig, but keep an eye on true freshman Henry Josey. The Tigers don't have a particularly challenging non-conference schedule, so they'll try to get the rotation figured out by the time conference play kicks off.

Today Missouri running back Derrick Washington was charged with sexually assaulting a female tutor over the summer. He is currently suspended from the team.

It's been an awful off-season for the Tigers as their players have dotted the police blotter with multiple DWI's, and now there's this serious assault matter. Kendial Lawrence is expected to start in Washington's absence, however long that may be.

Missouri athletic director Mike Alden has been aware of the legal situation surrounding running back Derrick Washington for weeks and supports the reasoning behind his suspension.  Washington is accused of sexually assaulting a woman at a campus apartment complex.

This is bad news for Washington as he was expected to have a big senior season.  However, backups Kendial Lawrence and De'Vion Moore are adequate replacements.

Missouri running back Derrick Washington has been suspended indefinitely.  No formal reason was given, but Washington's twitter page suggest it is likely class related.

Not exactly good news a week before the season is about to start.  However, if it is class related, I don't expect Washington to be out long.  We'll see.  Thanks to our users for tipping us off.

Missouri running back Derrick Washington starred in the team's first scrimmage, rushing for 133 yards and a score to go with 59 receiving yards and a receiving TD.

Washington ripped off a 73-yard run on the scrimmage's first play and never looked back.  He's had a great spring after shedding 10 pounds in the offseason, and he seems poised for a bounce back season.  Washington's rank is rising as draft season heats up.

Running back Derrick Washington along with center Tim Barnes, linebacker Luke Lambert and defensive back Kevin Rutland have been named Missouri's team captains.

As expected, Washington's numbers took a dip last season. However, we are projecting Washington to see an increase in production this year with a more experienced Blaine Gabbert leading the offense.

Missouri running back Derrick Washington has lost 10 pounds and eight percent of his body fat thanks to Missouri's new workout and nutrition plan.

Washington's drop in production was a fantasy disappointment last season, but he seems to have put himself in a position to bounce back this year.  The weight loss should increase his quickness and elusiveness, and a more experienced (and healthy) Blaine Gabbert helps as well.  Consider him a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 with some upside.

Running back Derrick Washington rushed for 68 yards on 10 carries and four scores in Missouri's scrimmage on Saturday.

Missouri offense should only improve in 2010, which should mean more scoring opportunities for Washington. He's worth a draft pick, especially in BCS-only leagues.

Dave Matter of the Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Missouri running back Derrick Washington looks trim and has "regained all of his quickness" now that he is fully recovered from his prior knee injuries.

Don't forget about Washington; he quietly had a solid year with 865 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2009.  He could approach 1000 yards in 2010, much like he did in 2008.

Missouri running back Derrick Washington rushed for 111 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries in Saturday's 41-39 win over Kansas.

Washington appears to be fully recovered from the concussion he sustained last week against Iowa State. This marks the junior's second 100-yard game of the 2009 season.

“He’s doing very, very well,” Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said of running back Derrick Washington (concussion).  “No headaches. We expect him to be 100 percent.”

It sound like Washington is going to play this Saturday against Kansas.  We would avoid the Missouri ground game in favor of quarterback Blaine Gabbert and wide receivers Danario Alexander and Jerrell Jackson.

Missouri running back Derrick Washington left Saturday's game with Iowa State in the second quarter due to a concussion.

Washington was off to a nice start, having already run 11 times for 62 yards and a score.

Missouri running back Derrick Washington rushed for 120 yards and the go-ahead touchdown in the Tigers' come-from-behind 27-20 victory over Bowling Green.

Unlike in the first game of the season, the Missouri  quarterback Blaine Gabbert struggled and the Tigers relied on the rush to get back into the game.  Washington had 23 carries - the most in a game in his career, and his first time topping the 20 carry mark.

Missouri coach Gary Pinkel is quoted by TulsaWorld.com as saying "without question we'll run the football even more."

And Derrick Washington's owners sit up a bit. As we stated in Derrick Washington's player preview, we do expect the back to see more carries, and this may equate to more yards, but we envision no scenario where he matches his 19 touchdowns of a season ago.
