Hamstring injury to quarterback Kelly Bryant in Missouri would have keep it away from the Saturday night clash against Georgia.
The news – first reported by Six Column Sports – has not yet been confirmed by official sources, but has been echoes by other voices on the Missouri beat.
Bryant was a high-level transfer for the Tigers. Previously at Clemson, Bryant had led (other) Tigers to Playoff Football College in 2017.
Bryant completed 62.2% of his passes for 1,845 yards this season. He launched 14 touchdowns and five interceptions. He also rushed for 205 yards and a touchdown.
Missouri coach Barry Odom acknowledged this week that Bryant's status was uncertain.
"I thought he had done some things a lot better today than last week," Odom said in a conversation with reporters on Tuesday. "I also know how effective you can play this position and what to do. If we played today, he would not be there. "
"We will take it from day to day. I think he's a fast healer. I learned that. I know that he was impatient today to do much more in practice today. So we decided to do it better and maybe we did more than I expected now. He will do more tomorrow and we will take it from there. "
If Bryant does not play, the Tigers will turn to Taylor Powell, a three-star quarterback from the 2017 promotion. Powell has completed 11 of his 26 pass attempts this season and has failed a touchdown or interception. Powell was 6/14 for 134 yards as a red rookie in 2018.
