Mizzou starting O-lineman not traveling to South Carolina?

Knocked out of Missouri’s first SEC game with a knee injury, veteran offensive lineman Elvis Fisher will miss his second conference game this season.

Fisher took to his Twitter account Friday to announce that he is not traveling with the team to South Carolina for Saturday’s game against the Gamecocks.

Fisher injured the MCL in his right knee earlier this month against Georgia and was said to be out indefinitely, though he thought a return was possible in the next month since the injury did not require surgery. Obviously, he’s not well enough to return against South Carolina. However, Fisher is a captain for the Tigers, so his apparent absence from the travel roster is a bit unexpected.

Fisher missed all of last season with a ruptured patellar tendon, but received a sixth year of eligibility from the NCAA in February.

    Feel bad for this guy. An NFL prospect but he has had some set backs with the knee. Hope he can play at some point this year.
