COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - No. 18 Missouri could get its top pass rusher back for this week's game against No. 3 Oklahoma.
Sophomore Aldon Smith said Monday he's ready to return from a broken bone in his leg that sidelined him for three weeks plus a week off.
But he remains off the depth chart for now. Coach Gary Pinkel says he'll wait to see how Smith does on the field in practice before making a decision.
The 260-pound Smith thought he'd be back much sooner from the injury he suffered Sept. 18 against San Diego State.
Smith set a school record with 11.5 sacks last year and he has three sacks this season. Sophomore Brad Madison, who had been Smith's backup, leads the Tigers with four sacks.
