The rumors were already running rampant that Henry Josey, the star running back of the Missouri Tigers and leading rusher in the Big 12, was likely out for the season. Post-game reports from the Tigers upset win over the Texas Longhorns confirmed that Josey’s season was over and yet the official results were still unknown. However, it’s now clear the injury to Josey’s left knee is worse than anyone could have believed.
According to Howard Richards via Twitter, the injury is triple fold. He writes, “Just heard news about Tigers’ Henry Josey. Triple tear—ACL, MCL, patellar tendon. Devastating injury. Please keep him in your prayers.”
Josey ends the season among the best running backs in the country and was having a sensation breakout year. He ends the season with 1,168 rushing yards and 9 rushing touchdowns.
