Mizzou QB Blaine Gabbert Will Return To Practice Tuesday After Hip Injury

Mizzou QB Blaine Gabbert may not miss much time at all after leaving Saturday's shutout against Colorado with a hip pointer.

Mizzou head coach Gary Pinkel says he'll practice on Tuesday, according to the AP.

"It's about pain tolerance," Pinkel said. "He has to be honest with us on how he feels. We can tell if he's a bit off with his throws, so we'll keep our eye on that."

Gabbert said he was in a  lot of on Sunday but leaving the game was the best move.

The next stop for him will be actually throwing at practice. The team wants to see how well he can throw and move his hips with that injury.

From the descriptions of a hip pointer that we've read, it's all about pain management and isn't likely to limit him much.

He's already been declared probable for Saturday so we should be seeing him play.
