Date:

Missouri senior WR Emanuel Hall (groin) wore a red non-contact jersey during Tuesday's practice session and is not listed on the updated depth chart ahead of Saturday's game against Kentucky.

All that sounds ominous for his availability this weekend, but that's the furthest thing on Hall's mind at the moment after he attended his father' funeral last week. Hall rejoined the team on Sunday.
Oct 23 - 1:49 PM

Per Pro Football Focus, Missouri redshirt sophomore TE Albert Okwuegbunam recorded 81 yards after the catch in Saturday's game against Memphis.

Okwuegbunam (6'5/255) caught 6-of-7 targets for 159 yards and three touchdowns in the Tigers' blowout win. He had a 158.3 passer rating when targeted and was electric with the ball in his hands. The physical specimen will take on Kentucky next Saturday.
Oct 21 - 11:22 AM

Missouri freshman WR Jalen Knox brought in five receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown in a 65-33 win over Memphis on Saturday.

A very strong game for Knox (6'0/190), who has been one of the most pleasant breakout surprises for the Tigers. It's the second time this year that he's gone over 100 yards, and the second straight game that he's scored a touchdown. Emmanuel Hall and Albert Okwuegbunam are going to be the top options when healthy, but Knox is a solid option in this passing game, and gives hope for the future. He'll be back on the gridiron against Kentucky next Saturday.
Oct 20 - 7:46 PM

Missouri redshirt sophomore TE Albert Okwuegbunam brought in six passes for 159 yards and three scores in a 65-33 crushing of Memphis on Saturday.

The Memphis defense had no answer for Okwuegbunam (6'5/255), as he was consistently wide open over the middle of the field. The redshirt sophomore continues to be hit-and-miss in the 2018 season, but the talent is obvious. The Tigers need to get the ball in his hands more often if they are going to go bowling at the end of the 2018 season. A big game comes next Saturday for Okwuegbunam and Missouri against Kentucky.
Oct 20 - 7:43 PM

Missouri sophomore RB Larry Rountree ran the ball nine times for 118 yards and three scores in a 65-33 crushing of Memphis on Saturday.

A strong game for the sophomore tailback, even with a relatively small amount of touches. Even with Drew Lock throwing for four scores, Rountree (5'10/210) was able to find the end zone thrice himself, and he's now scored six times in the last three weeks. He's going to split carries with Damarea Crockett -- Crockett had more carries in this one and scored himself -- but he's talented enough to put up numbers even still. Missouri takes on Kentucky next week.
Oct 20 - 7:40 PM

Missouri senior QB Drew Lock completed 23-of-29 passes for 350 yards with four touchdowns in a 65-33 blowout win over Memphis on Saturday.

A much better effort for Lock on Saturday than the one he had against Alabama, but -- spoiler alert -- Memphis isn't quite as good as Alabama is. Still, this was a nice reminder that the senior signal-caller isn't bereft of talent, and if this game was close it could have been an even bigger effort. He was accurate, on-time, and didn't turn the football over. Again, however, it was against a Memphis defense that leaves a lot -- a lot -- to be desired. A much tougher contest comes next Saturday against Kentucky.
Oct 20 - 7:36 PM

Missouri redshirt senior WR Nate Brown (groin) was a non-contact participant in Thursday's practice.

Brown (6'3/210) should be considered questionable for Saturday's game against Memphis. He's sat out each of the past two games. Expect a concrete update as to his availability when we're a little closer to kickoff.
Oct 18 - 7:25 PM

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.
Oct 10 - 1:48 PM

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.
