Missouri QB Kelly Bryant shares latest update on his status following knee injury
Kelly Bryant has gotten off to a great start for the Missouri Tigers’ offense so far this season, throwing for 1,246 yards and 11 touchdowns while rushing for 123 yards and another score, helping lead Barry Odom’s to a 4-1 start.
On Saturday, in the 42-10 win against Troy, Bryant went down following a scary hit to his knee. It turns out that it isn’t as bad as it seemed, as the quarterback suffered a knee sprain and is scheduled to return when the Tigers battle Ole Miss this weekend.
During a press conference on Tuesday, Bryant was asked about his health and noted he was about 90 percent and still getting adjusted to wearing a brace on his left knee, according to Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
This is excellent news for the Tigers as they enter a slate of games that could see them become a contender for the SEC East title and spot in the championship game in Atlanta — provided the team’s postseason ban is lifted by the NCAA.
A graduate transfer, Bryant started his career at Clemson and began as the Tigers’ starting quarterback last season in the first three games before losing the job to Trevor Lawrence. He decided to use a redshirt season and left the program after four games.
