Missouri WR reportedly undergoes surgery to repair torn meniscus
According to a report by Tyler Murry of ABC 17 News, Missouri freshman wide receiver Maurice Massey underwent successful surgery on his torn meniscus in his right knee on Thursday. Massey suffered the injury earlier this season, during which he appeared in four games.
Massey didn’t record any receiving stats for Missouri this year, but he’ll be allowed to use his redshirt for the season due to not playing in more than four games. He took to Twitter to share the news of his successful surgery:
Murry reported that the Tigers are unsure if Massey will be recovered from the surgery in time to participate in spring camp.
A 3-star recruit out of St. Louis, Massey should be in the mix for playing time at wide receiver next season. The Tigers are losing both Jonathan Nance and Johnathon Johnson to graduation.
However, it’s unknown who Missouri’s head coach will be next season after it fired Barry Odom. That could affect Massey’s future, depending on how the new coaching staff will view his value to the team.
Either way, Massey will now begin his recovery from surgery and prepare to make an impression next season.
