James Franklin Injury Update: Mizzou Quarterback Expected To Return By End Of Spring Practice

The Missouri Tigers have a major year ahead of them as they enter the SEC and fight for respect among an entirely new set of peers. Not only this, but the Big 12 will be watching them to see how life after leaving is faring. That makes this spring practice session an important one for an offense that will need to click on all cylinders in its new environment. Unfortunately, the man that everything goes through in James Franklin has injured his throwing shoulder.

The official diagnosis is a sprain in his throwing shoulder and Chad Moeller is reporting that he won’t be back for a bit. Vahe Gregorian writes, “The timetable for his return is unknown, MU spokesman Chad Moller said by text message Wednesday. But Franklin, who will be a junior this fall, is expected to return before the end of spring practice, which concludes April 14 at Faurot Field.”

Corbin Berkstresser will take the spring practice snaps, and the good news there is that it gives experience down the depth chart. Still Franklin has the skill set and athleticism to turn a major corner and perhaps even develop into a Heisman candidate. Hopefully this injury will not hinder him too much.
