Henry Josey Discusses Rehab Work For Missouri Tigers

It's been a long road to recovery for Missouri Tigers running back Henry Josey since he tore the anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament and patellar tendon in his left knee during a November 2011 game against the Texas Longhorns. It will continue to be a long road ahead, as Josey is expected to miss the Tigers' entire 2012 season.

It's been hard at times for Josey to continue working to get back on the field eventually with the Tigers, but in an interview, he said that it's easy to find motivation to continue whenever he looks at his 16-month-old son, Henry Jr.:

"Any time I got to go home for a break, when I wasn't rehabbing, I spent every day at home with him. Pretty much 24-seven, the whole time I was with him," Henry Josey said. "That was something I needed, especially going through my injury. He took a lot of stuff off my mind. He helped me out a lot, too."

Even after learning he will likely miss the entire 2012 season, Josey has continued to work out with the Tigers, saying he's glad to even have the opportunity to do so:

"I'm happy just to be back out here. I don't even know if I was supposed to play football again, with how bad my injury was, let alone, be doing what I'm doing now," Henry Josey said. "Me being out here is just a big thing. Me putting my pads on is big thing to me. I wouldn't be disappointed, it's whatever I have to do really."
