Mizzou QB Blaine Gabbert Leaves Colorado Game With Hip Injury

Mizzou Tigers QB Blaine Gabbert left Saturday night's game against the Colorado Buffaloes with a hip injury.

The official word from Mizzou is that Gabbert has a hip pointer.

Here's the definition of a hip pointer: "A hip pointer is a contusion to the iliac crest, the surrounding soft-tissue structures, or the greater trochanter of the femur. Typically, the injury is caused by a direct blow or fall.1,2,3 Hip pointer injuries occur most commonly in contact sports"

He will not return against Colorado.

Depending on the severity, this could be a couple of days to a couple of weeks. Last year Gabbert played with a sprained ankle for much of the season so he's shown a willingness to play with pain.

He was down on the sidelines Saturday night with ice on his ribs.
