With preseason practices underway, it's only a matter of time before injury bug starts rearing its ugly head. Unfortunately for Missouri, this includes new quarterback Kelly Bryant and star tight end Albert Okwuegbunam, both of whom had to be carted from the field Monday with injuries.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Okwuegbunam went down first during a red zone drill. Minutes later, Bryant suffered a non-contact injury when he slipped while rolling out of the pocket. Both were able to walk off the playing field to the medical tent, but were carted away for further examination.
The silver lining, though, is that coach Barry Odom didn't seem particularly worried that he would lose either player for an extended amount of time.
