Missouri down a key contributor for Arkansas

Not surprising, but unfortunate.

Missouri will be without second-leading rusher Damarea Crockett when the Tigers (7-4, 3-4 SEC) kickoff against Arkansas (2-9, 0-7) at 2:30 p.m. CT Friday.

Crockett was limited with an ankle injury against Tennessee, and eventually was pulled out of the game after carrying the ball three times for ten yards. On the season, Crockett has 709 yards and seven touchdowns on 147 carries.

This will be the third time in a row that Crockett will miss the Arkansas game. He was suspended for the season finale in 2016, and a year ago he missed the second half of the season with a shoulder injury. It’s especially unfortunate, consider Crockett is an Arkansas native — this game certainly has more meaning to him.

The game Friday will be broadcast by CBS.
