Sheldon Richardson to miss the spring for Mizzou

After two years at the JUCO level — and one brief verbal flip-flop — defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson signed with Missouri in December of 2010, although he missed spring practice and a portion of summer camp last year as he worked his way through eligibility issues with the NCAA.

Unfortunately for the Tigers, Richardson will be a no-go for the Tigers again this spring, although for an entirely different reason.

Head coach Gary Pinkel confirmed Monday that Richardson, along with starting defensive end Brad Madison, will miss all of spring practice due to injury.  Both lineman are listed as out due to offseason shoulder operations.

In 13 games — two starts — last season, Richardson finished fifth on the team in tackles for loss with eight and tied for fifth in sacks with two. ┬áMadison started 12 games in 2011 and was second on the Tigers with 4.5 sacks and third in TFL with 8.5.
