Mizzou DE Aldon Smith Hoping For Return Against Texas A&M

Mizzou DE Aldon Smith did not play on Saturday against Colorado but he's hoping to be ready next Saturday against Texas A&M.

"We’ll have to find out," Smith told the KC Star. "But I can run."
That's good news if it's true. Gary Pinkel told reporters he is waiting for Smith to show he can run, among other things. Via Dave Matter of the Columbia Tribune:
"Right now we have him as not playing," Pinkel said. "That's the training report I got this morning, that he's going to be out. The only thing that would change that if he's moving better, if all of a sudden Tuesday he comes out there ... and that's certainly going to be up to him and the trainers ... if he can run and be competitive.
It sounds like Smith wants to play and I wouldn't count him out. Mizzou could use him next week but at the same time they need him the rest of the season so they don't want to push it. The prognosis doesn't sound great but he wants to play.
