Mizzou QB James Franklin Says Shoulder Feels Great Heading Into Fall Camp

Mizzou's daunting SEC schedule looks a little less scary, as starting quarterback James Franklin appears good to go after offseason shoulder surgery.

Franklin passed for 2,865 yards and 21 touchdowns in his first year as a starter. Even better news for Mizzou fans is that the junior says he put up those numbers with nagging injuries.

Franklin had surgery on his right shoulder in March after injuring it while trying to recover a fumble in practice. Franklin's availability will be vital for the Tigers as they hope for a smooth transition to the SEC. Along with those passing numbers, Franklin rushed for 981 yards and 15 more touchdowns.
