— Missouri released its new depth chart on Monday, and it appears senior left tackle Elvis Fisher - who has missed Missouri's last three games with a MCL injury - will be able to play Saturday against Vanderbilt. Fisher is listed as the first-team left tackle, while junior Justin Britt - who has started in Fisher's place - is the starter on the right side.

Senior Jack Meiners, who has been battling through a knee injury, is now listed as questionable after starting the last two games at right tackle.

*It looks like Missouri will also get senior Zaviar Gooden back this week. Gooden, who missed last week's game with a pulled hamstring, is listed as the starter at weakside linebacker. His replacement, Donovan Bonner, is now the backup to Will Ebner at middle linebacker.

*CBS announced that Missouri's home game against No. 1 Alabama on Oct. 13 will be played at 2:30 p.m.

*Sophomore running back Marcus Murphy was named co-special teams player of the week by the SEC. Murphy gave Missouri a 14-10 lead it never lost Saturday with his 66-yard punt return touchdown in the third quarter against Central Florida.

Murphy was also named SEC special teams player of the week after week 1, when he returned two punts for touchdowns against Southeastern Louisiana.
