Missouri QB James Franklin out for Alabama-Mizzou game.

Missouri will have to face the no.1 ranked team in the country without it's star quarterback. James Franklin was knocked out of the Tigers' embarrassing 19-15 loss to Vanderbilt with a knee injury that will keep him out of action for a while.

Mizzou head football Gary Pinkell reports that coach reports that Franklin "has a strained MCL, so he’s out for a few weeks.” Till then, the Tigers will have to use backup QB Corbin Berkstresser to lead the team on the field. It may also be forced to de-redshirt freshman QB Maty Mauk.
