So what’s next for Cale Garrett?

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

Cale Garrett had successful surgery on his pectoral tendon Tuesday morning, and the senior linebacker is all but expected to be out for the rest of the season.

Is it the end of his career at Missouri, though? We don’t know that for sure yet. It’s certainly a complicated situation, but perhaps applying for a medical redshirt next season isn’t out of the question. With Garrett’s injury taking place in the first half of the fifth game in the season, this might be a tough battle to win, though.

“We’ll look at every avenue that we can,” Barry Odom told Brendan Wiese on The Big 550 KTRS Monday night.

Jim Sterk appears to be on the same page as Odom. “If it’s in Cale’s interest, we’ll certainly pursue that.”

Yes, a lot is going to need to happen for this to actually progress, but it seems like Missouri will be doing everything they can to make a medical redshirt work.

More likely than not, Saturday against Troy was Garrett’s final game as a Missouri Tiger. And what a way for him to go out after he won SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Week.

With Garrett out now, the production from the linebackers are going to have to rely heavily on Nick Bolton, and he’s more than capable of stepping up to the challenge.

Unfortunately, this Garrett injury feels oh-so-similar to “Pig” Brown’s situation in 2007.

Speaking of the 2007 team, we’ve got a Twitter poll up and running about them, so go ahead and VOTE!
