Barry Odom announces Kelly Bryant, Albert Okwuegbunam left Mizzou practice early with injuries
Fall camp is back, and unfortunately, injuries are too.
So far, teams have stayed relatively healthy, although two different Auburn receivers have already suffered injuries.
On Monday, however, Missouri quarterback Kelly Bryant and tight end Albert Okwuegbunam left practice early due to injuries. That’s mildly concerning for Mizzou, considering Bryant and Okwuegbunam are two of the biggest offensive weapons the Tigers have.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Dave Matter shared the news on Twitter from Barry Odom, “Kelly Bryant (hamstring strain) and Albert Okwuegbunam (knee strain) both left today’s practice, getting further tests. Odom didn’t seem overly concerned about severity but didn’t know much right after practice.”
Injuries always happen during fall camp, and it’s usually early in camp that they do happen. However, these two are key to Mizzou’s offensive attack.
Knee injuries are alway concerning, and hamstring injuries can be nagging. For Mizzou’s sake, these two have to get healthy quickly. Missouri opens up the 2019 season August 31 with a trip to Wyoming.
