Missouri from QB would have been missing for the UGA match


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.
