Depth chart analysis

Unsurprisingly, wide receiver Richaud Floyd will not play Friday due to a concussion. The Missouri return-man and wide receiver got knocked out cold in a nasty helmet-to-helmet collision against Tennessee Saturday and will sit out for the season finale. We all hope he makes a speedy recovery.

Albert Okwuegbunam is on the roster this week. However, as a third-stringer. A shoulder injury has plagued the Mackey Award finalist since the Florida game, but it seems like he could get a few reps in Missouri’s bout with Arkansas. His health will certainly become important with #BowlSZN coming up.

Larry Rountree III will handle kick returns in lieu of Floyd’s concussion and Tyler Badie coming off a recent injury. Missouri’s speedster running back is experienced with returning kickoffs, and the Tigers will rely solely on him for those duties with the recent injuries to Floyd and Badie. He took on that role for a bit last year and performed admirably in doing so.
