Missouri coaches share the latest update on QB Kelly Bryant's status for Florida
There’s no secret that Missouri’s offense is more explosive at home. The Tigers are averaging 40.4 points in five games at Faurot Field while just 13.0 in four games on the road.
It can also be agreed upon that the Tigers are much better with Kelly Bryant in at quarterback, especially after last week when he sat out with an injury and Derek Dooley’s offense was held scoreless by Georgia in a 27-0 loss.
Per Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Tigers will more than likely have the luxury of having Bryant back on Saturday when they host No. 11 Florida in Columbia.
Missouri coach Barry Odom is confident his signal-caller will be on the field on Saturday.
“Fully expect him to play and play well – unless there’s a setback,” he said.
Even better news is that Bryant agrees that his hamstring injury is getting better as the days pass.
“It’s feeling good,” the quarterback said. “Feeling better than last week. Feeling really great about where I’m at right now with it.”
He will have a challenge ahead of him against the Gators, though. Florida’s defense is allowing just 308.2 total yards per game, including just 191.9 through the air. In eight games this season, Bryant has thrown for 1,845 yards with 14 touchdowns and five interceptions.
Missouri OC Derek Dooley said Kelly Bryant "took all the reps" in today's practice. Says he's not 100 percent "but it was good having him back leading the offense."
