With Derrick Washington's Permanent Suspension, Focus Shifts To Mizzou RB Kendial Lawrence

With former Mizzou RB Derrick Washington now permanently suspended, the Missouri Tigers focus their attention on sophomore running back Kendial Lawrence.

He's the one who will be taking over for Washington in 2010.

So what kind of experience does Lawrence have? Not much.

Last year he carried the ball 52 times for 219 yards for an average of 4.2 yards per carry, which is below Washington's 5.9 in 2008 and 4.6 in 2009.

He also caught three balls for 49 yards.

He has no rushing or receiving touchdowns.

So that's your Derrick Washington replacement -- 55 career touches.

De'Vion Moore figures to work into the rotation somehow. He's been injured in the last week though.
