Richardson back, Franklin questionable
Tuesday, November 20, 2012
COLUMBIA — Missouri’s 2012 season will go down as the year of injuries and oddly-timed rants about old-man football.
So it’s only fitting the final game of the regular season would involve an injury to starting quarterback James Franklin and the headline-maker Sheldon Richardson.
Franklin, who left Saturday’s game in the fourth quarter with a concussion, is listed as questionable for Saturday’s game at ninth-ranked Texas A&M.
“It’s an area of caution,” Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel said about concussions. “It’s a hot topic because of all football, but certainly the NFL. A lot of information is coming out. Our medical staff does a great job with those things.”
