COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri coach Gary Pinkel says star
defensive end Aldon Smith will miss the Tigers' game Saturday
against Miami of Ohio due to a broken bone in his leg.
Pinkel said on the Big 12 coaches' conference call Monday that
Smith broke a non-weight bearing bone in his leg in Saturday's win
over San Diego State. He should be able to return this season,
perhaps within a couple weeks. Pinkel says he's had players play
through the injury before.
Smith set a school record with 11½ sacks last season as a
freshman, enough to finish tied for ninth in the country. He leads
the team with three sacks so far this season.
