Mizzou Football Camp: Top WR Jerrell Jackson Breaks Wrist, Out A Month

This isn't good news. The Missouri Tigers top wide receiver Jerrell Jackson broke his wrist on Wednesday afternoon, Dave Matter of the Columbia Tribune reports.

Bad, bad news for the Missouri offense: The team's leading returning pass-catcher, slot receiver Jerrell Jackson, has a broken scaphoid bone in his left wrist and will miss approximately four weeks of action, team spokesman Chad Moller confirmed. Jackson's wrist will be put in a cast and not require surgery. He suffered the injury at the end of a 30-yard catch-and-run during Wednesday's 11-on-11 drills, after which he grabbed the wrist in pain and was seen by team trainers.

It's a similar injury to the one that Danario Alexander suffered in week one against Illinoins in 2007. He missed three weeks there.

It looks like Jackson will definitely miss the Sept. 4 opener against Illinoins but could conceivably be back for Sept. 11 against McNeese State.

So who takes his spot?

His backup is T.J. Moe and he's had a solid camp with Matter saying he's "arguably been MU's most consistent and productive receiver through the first week of camp."
