Last week Mizzou DE Aldon Smith said last week he wasn't sure if the medical staff would clear him to play against Texas A&M. He said he could run but Gary Pinkel and the medical staff ruled him out for the game.
Dave Matter of the Columbia Tribune says Smith told him today: "I'm playing."
Pinkel hasn't yet put him on the depth chart but indicated that indeed it's a possibility Smith will be ready to play this weekend against Oklahoma.
For Mizzou it couldn't be better timing. Even though their defense is playing great right now they'll need all the help they can get against Oklahoma.
