The Missouri Tigers could be without starting quarterback James Franklin when they take on the Arizona State Sun Devils this Saturday. Franklin is doubtful and listed as a game-time decision on Saturday, according to various reports.
Franklin's injury for not starting tomorrow is his shoulder. Apparently it was irritated again last week during UGA game. per, MU Source.— Ashley Zavala (@ZavalaA) September 14, 2012
Franklin injured the same shoulder last season, and spent the offseason rehabbing the injury. In last Saturday's game against Georgia, Franklin was hit quite a few times, and was sacked twice. The Missouri offensive line has had issues, and is the main reason Franklin took so many hits.
If Franklin does not start, then it will be Corbin Berkstresser who gets the nod under center. Berkstresser has only seen mop-up duty in Missouri's season-opening game against Southeastern Louisiana, where he was 5-of-5 and threw for just 60 yards.
