The Missouri Tigers are set to return to the practice field. Spring practice technically started nearly three weeks ago. However, Missouri held only four practices prior to spring break. The Tigers will practice 11 times in the next 18 days, concluding with the spring game on April 21st (complete schedule below).
One practice was added to the spring's second half due to injuries. The Tigers were pretty beat up when spring started, and a few more players got bumps and bruises in the opening days. Here is a rundown of players we will be watching:
Brock Christopher injured an ankle in the spring's third practice. Not sure of the severity and it will be something to watch whether or not Christopher can return. Breaking in two new starters, you'd like to have your middle linebacker on the field as much as possible.
Monte Wyrick missed the first few practices of spring, but the team was hopeful he would be ready for this week. With Kurtis Gregory already out for the spring, Mizzou would like as many healthy linemen as possible.
Earl Goldsmith was severely limited early on by a hamstring. With Connell Davis continuing to battle fumble problems, every day Goldsmith misses is a chance missed to move up the depth chart.
The Tigers will practice for three consecutive days. PowerMizzou.com will have a practice report each day and frequent photo galleries. The April 7th and 14th workouts are expected to be scrimmages that will help iron out the depth chart leading to the spring game.
