On Thursday evening, Mizzou Football announced their first injury report of the season, as they will be releasing these every Thursday night NFL style. The biggest question mark heading into tomorrow’s opener against Central Michigan is the status of the Ohio State transfer wide receiver Mookie Cooper. And just like it was to begin the week, Cooper has been listed as questionable from a lower leg injury.
Meanwhile, DL Travion Ford and WR Ja’Mori Maclin (broken forearm) have been ruled out for Saturday. Also, Zxaequan Reeves, Kyran Montgomery (torn ACL) and Jonathan Jones have been listed as out for the season.

Other than that, nothing notable injury wise.
And from football to.....futbol...Mizzou Soccer picked up a 1-0 overtime win over Miami (FL) yesterday night on the game-winning goal by Skye Kingsley!
After losing their first two games of the season, the Tigers have rebounded and improved to 2-2 on the season under first year head coach Stefanie Golan. Missouri closes out their season opening five-game home stand on Sunday at noon (SEC Network Plus) against Notre Dame.
