Henry Josey Injury Update: Josey Working Hard To Get Back On The Field, Needs One More Surgery

Missouri Tigers running back Henry Josey, who suffered a devastating knee injury last season in which he tore his ACL, MCL and Patella, is working hard to get back on the field. The sophomore is hitting the weights hard to try to get to the point in which he can move his knee at 90 degrees so he can have his final surgery and his offensive coordinator David Yost is impressed with the running back's work ethic.

"He's doing tremendous on his rehab," said Missouri Tigers offensive coordinator David Yost. "He is working as hard in there as our guys working in the weight room to get himself back."

Josey led the Big 12 with 116 rushing yards per game before his injury against the Texas Longhorns in November. It's currently unclear at to whether or not he'll be ready for the start of the season, but if he's not, coaches plan to red shirt him so he doesn't lose a year of eligibility. Even if that's the case, Yost isn't worried about the running back position, though he knows have Josey back in 2012 would be nice.

"It would be really deep if you sit Henry Josey on top of that list as completely healthy, but I think we are going to be in good shape there," said Yost. "If Henry's back it's a bonus and we will get to just go and attack with him."
