Mizzou defensive end Aldon Smith will miss Saturday's game against Miami (OH)

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.
