— Missouri sophomore safety Braylon Webb had arthroscopic surgery Friday afternoon to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his left knee. Associate athletics director Chad Moller said Webb is expected to return in 7-10 days.

Webb, a 6-foot, 210-pound Gilmer, Texas, native, is listed at the top of Missouri's preseason depth chart at free safety. In 11 games last year, including four starts, he finished with 36 tackles and a fumble recovery. He missed two games last season with a meniscus tear in his right knee.

In Webb's spot with the first-team defense Friday morning was junior Matt White, who made 47 tackles and had four pass breakups in 13 games last year (including five starts).
