Junior quarterback James Franklin's shoulder is still ailing as Missouri prepares for South Carolina.

Missouri Tigers quarterback James Franklin will once again be a game-time decision this week, according to Missouri coach Gary Pinkel, as the Tigers resume SEC play by traveling to the No. 7 South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday.

Franklin was a game-time decision last week in the Tigers' home game against Arizona State, following a re-injury to his shoulder against Georgia two weeks ago. After throwing for 269 yards against the Bulldogs, his ailing shoulder, which required surgery over the offseason, kept him out against the Sun Devils.

Missouri will prepare freshman Corbin Berkstresser for another start, after he led the Tigers to a 24-20 win by throwing for 198 yards on 21-of-41 passing.

Franklin has thrown for 400 yards and three touchdowns this season, with the junior tallying career totals of 3,371 yards and 25 touchdowns.
