Missouri Tigers running back Henry Josey will not likely play for the Tigers in 2012, according to a tweet by ESPN's Edward Aschoff, as he is still recovering from a knee injury suffered in Missouri's game against the Texas Longhorns on November 12.
Pinkel says RB Henry Josey is doing well with rehab but it's "a stretch" that he'll play this year— Edward Aschoff (@AschoffESPN) July 17, 2012
Josey suffered a triple tear of his knee, his ACL, MCL and patellar tendon were all torn. Prior to that injury, Josey had led the Big 12 in rushing with 1,168 yards and averaged an NCAA-leading 8.6 yards per carry. He had rushed for nine touchdowns, including three in a 14 carry, 263 yards rushing performance against Western Illinois on September 17.
The hope here is that Josey's surgeries will help him recapture the form that he showed last season. Josey appears to be trying as hard as he can to come back as soon as he can, but I'm sure Tiger fans would rather see Josey back at full strength after a long hiatus.
