Date:

Missouri senior WR Emanuel Hall (groin) will not play on Saturday against Memphis.

An early rule-out for the talented senior, who missed Saturday's game against Alabama and the previous week's contest against South Carolina. It's a big loss for Drew Lock and the Missouri passing offense, as Hall has been the top wideout in the offense when healthy. Nate Brown has also missed the previous two weeks, so if he can't come back, it'll be Jonathon Johnson and Jalen Knox as the top wide receiver options.
Oct 15 - 4:37 PM

Missouri freshman WR Jalen Knox caught three passes for 61 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 39-10 loss to Alabama.

Knox (6'0/190) scored the lone touchdown for the Tigers tonight when he caught a 20-yard pass at the end of the first quarter. It was the freshman's second touchdown of his career, but there may be many more coming. Knox has strung together three straight 50 yard games now and they have all came on the road. The Tigers will finally get a home game next week when Memphis comes into town.
Oct 14 - 12:30 AM

Missouri senior QB Drew Lock completed 13-of-26 passes for 142 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Saturday's 39-10 loss to Alabama.

Before the game, Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote that Lock needs to play well against Alabama or "red flags will be raised." Well... Lock didn't play well. The senior quarterback started the game with an interception that was nearly returned for a touchdown, but it wasn't just the INTs. Missouri wasn't able to move the ball with Lock averaging 5.46 yards per pass attempt. It's always tough for quarterbacks going against Bama defenses, but quarterbacks trying to sneak into the first round need to play better than how Lock played on Saturday. Lock will bring 12/6 TD/INT ratio into next week's game against Memphis.
Oct 14 - 12:20 AM

Missouri senior LB Terez Hall was ejected for targeting during the first half of Saturday's game at Alabama.

The loss of Hall (6'2/230) is a major blow for Missouri to absorb, given his importance to the defense and the talent that the Tigers are up against. Freshman Nick Bolton was listed as Hall's backup on the depth chart released prior to Saturday's game. If there's a silver lining in this cloud it's that the senior was ejected in the first half, meaning he'll be available from the start when Missouri hosts Memphis October 20.
Oct 13 - 8:16 PM

Missouri received a verbal commitment from three-star 2019 S Ishmael Burdine.

Burdine (6'1/175) is a versatile prospect who has the flexibility to play all over the secondary depending on how the Tigers' coaching staff needs to use him. He opted for Missouri over Mississippi State, UVA and K-State. In addition to his upside as a defensive back, Burdine has found success on special teams at Louisiana's Slidell High. He's sitting at No. 393 overall on the 247Sports composite board, so consider him a high three-star prospect. The outlet, itself, grades him out as a four-star recruit.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that if Missouri senior QB Drew Lock "plays as bad or worse against Alabama (as he did against Georgia and South Carolina) red flags will be raised."

"This is a chance for Lock to make a statement and prove the Georgia and South Carolina contests were an exception to the rule," Pauline writes. The Missouri prospect failed to complete 50% of his passes in either of the mentioned contests, and was picked off three times to boot. Pauline refers to the 6-foot-4, 225-pounder's "decision-making, accuracy and most of all his pass placement" as "worrisome." While shining through against Alabama is obviously a steep task, we've seen great quarterbacks rise above the monster before. Justin Herbert will likewise have an intriguing matchup on Saturday, going against Washington's stacked secondary. We'll be watching both games very, very closely.
Oct 12 - 3:39 PM

Missouri redshirt senior WR Nate Brown (groin) will not play on Saturday against Alabama.

Brown (6'3/210) was expected to be able to ready to roll after missing Saturday's game against South Carolina, but he's getting an early rule-out for the contest against the Crimson Tide. Emanuel Hall will also miss the game with a groin injury, so Jonathan Johnson and Jalen Knox should continue to see the bulk of the wideout targets on Saturday.

Missouri senior WR Emanuel Hall (groin) will not play on Saturday against Alabama.

There was some optimism that Hall (6'3/195) might be able to play after he was listed as a co-starter on the week's initial depth chart, but he and Nate Brown are both going to miss Saturday's game against the Crimson Tide. Jonathon Johnson and Jalen Knox should be the top targets for the Tigers from the wideout position for Drew Lock against Alabama.
Oct 10 - 1:46 PM

Missouri redshirt senior WR Nate Brown (groin) is expected to be able to play against Alabama on Saturday.

Brown (6'3/210) was sidelined for Saturday's loss to South Carolina due to a groin injury. Looks like he should be able to return versus the Crimson Tide barring a late setback. With Emanuel Hall likely to miss that contest due to a groin injury of his own, Brown could receive an increased number of looks from QB Drew Lock as the Tigers try to at least vaguely make it a game against the defending champs. Brown has caught 12 passes for 129 yards in four games this season.
Oct 9 - 5:31 PM

Missouri redshirt junior WR Richaud Floyd (leg) could potentially make his season-debut against Alabama on Saturday.

Floyd (5'11/195) has yet to play this season due to a broken leg sustained in August camp. He returned to practice last week and has been making steady progress in his recovery. If he's not quite ready to suit up against the Crimson Tide on Saturday, the following weekend's showdown with Memphis figures to be a pretty good bet for his return.
Oct 9 - 5:25 PM

Missouri HC Barry Odom said that he doesn't expect senior WR Emanuel Hall (groin) to be available for Saturday's game against Alabama.

Hall (6'3/195) did not travel with the Tigers for their loss to South Carolina over the weekend. That's the first game that he's missed outright this season, but he's been working through nagging injury since the second week of the campaign. Odom passed along that the team does not have a concrete timetable for Hall's return to action at this juncture. Kam Scott and Khmari Thompson -- both freshman -- could see an increase of playing time against the Alabama machine if Hall sits as expected.
Oct 9 - 5:03 PM

Missouri redshirt senior WR Nate Brown (groin) is listed as a co-starter for Saturday's game against Alabama.

Brown missed last Saturday's loss at South Carolina, as did Emanuel Hall. Both are being listed as co-starters now, which honestly doesn't tell us much at all about how far they've progressed since last update.
Oct 9 - 12:14 PM

Missouri senior WR Emanuel Hall (groin) is listed as a co-starter for Saturday's game against Alabama.

Hall and Nate Brown both missed last Saturday's loss at South Carolina with groin injuries. Missouri is taking a wait-and-see approach with both at the moment. Check back later this week for a more definitive status update out of Missouri.
Oct 9 - 12:13 PM

Missouri sophomore RB Larry Rountree ran 13 times for 90 yards with two touchdowns in a 37-35 loss to South Carolina on Saturday.

Rountree and Demarea Crockett had little trouble running against the Gamecocks' defense. Unfortunately, the passing game stalled, and the Tigers' defense didn't do them any favors, either. The sophomore tailback has scored in back-to-back games, and four total. It won't be easy, but he'll look to add to those totals next Saturday against Alabama.
Oct 6 - 5:40 PM

Missouri redshirt junior RB Damarea Crockett ran the ball 20 times for 154 yards and a touchdown in a 37-35 loss to South Carolina on Saturday.

Crockett and Larry Rountree both had strong games for the Tigers, with the latter going for 90 yards and two scores in the close loss. Crocket (5'11/225) was the leader for Missouri, and got into the end zone with a one-yard plunge near the end of the first to give the Tigers a 14-7 lead. It's the first time the tailback has reached the century mark this year, and the touchdown is the third on the year. Crockett and Rountree should continue to split carries next Saturday against Alabama.
