Depth chart analysis

Despite concerns, Ware, Bryant back atop depth chart

Jarvis Ware was a surprise pick for the starting cornerback spot heading into Week 1 at Wyoming, and he had an OK performance with two assisted tackles and a pass breakup.

Nothing changed when Missouri released its second depth chart heading into Week 2 against West Virginia, but on game day, Ware was nowhere to be seen on the field. It was reported prior to kick off that Ware had been heard discussing an ankle injury. Head Coach Barry Odom confirmed the injury to reporters after the win, saying Ware injured his ankle during practice later in the week.

Fortunately, it looks as though Ware’s ankle is in much better condition, and he’s expected to once again start at CB come Saturday.

Meanwhile, quarterback Kelly Bryant, who exited the game toward the end of the third quarter before heading toward the Tigers’ locker room, is still QB1 on the updated depth chart.

An MU spokesperson told the press box that Bryant’s leaving the field was nothing serious, which Odom also confirmed, saying he was just overheated. Bryant was a full participant in practice Tuesday and said he was feeling fine afterward, which means he should be ready to go once SEMO comes into town.

Knox, Scott continue sharing 3rd receiver spot

For the third week in a row, Jalen Knox and Kam Scott are both listed as starters at Missouri’s third receiver spot (with the -or- distinction).

Both young wideouts with bright futures, Knox and Scott have split a majority of the snaps and are expected to both remain playing starters’ minutes. Through two games, Knox has caught seven passes on 10 targets for 88 yards, and Scott has two catches on four targets for 64 yards.

Knox and Scott both bring a ton of speed and versatility to the position, but with grad transfer Jonathan Nance occupying the other wideout spot, it’s going to be tough for the two of them to see the field at the same time. Still, offensive coordinator Derek Dooley seems to believe both players have the skill to start at this level, which is why they’ll remain co-starters for the time being.
