COLUMBIA, Mo. - When Missouri quarterback James Franklin suffered a shoulder injury in spring practice, there was some concern on how it would affect the junior's progress, and whether he would be 100 percent when the season opened.

So far, so good for the Tiger signal caller.

Franklin joined his teammates on the practice field Thursday as the Tigers opened up preseason camp.

Things have gone so well for Franklin that Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said he could start a game tomorrow if he had to.
