Henry Josey Officially Out For Missouri's 2012 Season

After attempting to rehab and return to play football in 2012, it was announced that Missouri Tigers' running back Henry Josey will be shut down and miss the entire season. Josey tore his ACL, MCL and patellar tendon against the Texas Longhorns last November.

Head coach Gary Pinkel made the announcement on Monday that Josey was out for the season:

Henry Josey will not play this year, you probably figured that out. I tell you what, in practice yesterday, it was kind of interesting, it was Sunday evening and offense and defense were practicing on both ends of the field in The Zou and all of a sudden I see this guy in a red jersey with his shoulder pads on and he is striding the full length of the field and I'm standing at the 50-yard line and it was Henry and he was running and running good and he was running hard.

He's a remarkable kid and I'm so impressed and I went over there and gave him a big hug and high five. He will be back one of these days and I have to say that and I admire him so much as he's battled through all the adversity he's had.

With Josey out, the starting running back for Missouri will be senior Kendial Lawrence.
