Gary Pinkel Says Decision On Will Ebner Will Come Next Week

Mizzou LB Will Ebner was arrested last weekend on DWI charges. The question following an arrest is always: What kind of punishment will he get?

Gary Pinkel didn't say what Ebner's punishment will be and didn't indicate whether playing in game one will be an option, according to Dave Matter of the Columbia Tribune.

Pinkel wouldn't say if LB Ebner plays vs Illinois. Said answer will come in next week's roster/depth chart

Pinkel doesn't comment on these sorts of things anyway. We'll see if his name is on the game roster next week. In Mizzou's latest depth chart, Ebner was demoted to the third team.

Mizzou LB Will Ebner Reportedly Arrested On Suspicion Of DWI

Missouri Tigers LB Will Ebner was arrested on suspicion of DWI early Sunday morning, according to the Boone County Sheriff's Department.

Per Dave Matter of the Columbia Tribune:

Ebner’s eyes were bloodshot and glassy and his speech was incoherent, according to the arrest report. He admitted he had been drinking and was cooperative, O’Sullivan said. The junior linebacker failed a breathalyzer test and was taken into custody at Boone County Jail where he posted $500 bond and was released.

Ebner was the No. 2 middle linebacker and hasn't been practicing for a week with a hamstring pull.

According to the Kansas City Star, MU officials are not commenting and said the situation will be handled internally.

SB Nation's Rock M Nation has this to say on Ebner:

Come on, dude.  I mean, first of all ... I'm accepting of the fact that college students drink.  I did.  But ... the season has started!  Put it aside for a little while.  Second ... you're a football player. You know people.  HAVE SOMEBODY ELSE DRIVE.  So stupid.  I assume the punishment will end up in the "one-game suspension" range, and in theory Mizzou won't need him against Illinois.  But you're one of this team's few upper-classmen.  Act like it.

Check out the reaction at Rock M Nation.
