Missouri’s depth at defensive tackle has taken a slight hit.
Genia Vincent, the mother of redshirt sophomore Lucas Vincent, told The Star on Tuesday that he tore his pectoral muscle on Monday. Vincent was told by a doctor that he will need four weeks to recover, but will not need surgery.
That timeframe puts Vincent in position to be ready to contribute by Sept. 1, when Missouri opens the season against Southeastern Louisiana.
Vincent, a graduate of Olathe North, is expected to contribute heavily at defensive tackle this season, with the graduation of Dominique Hamilton and Terrell Resonno. The 6-foot-2, 295-pound defensive tackle entered the spring listed at first-string nose guard, and was one of a handful of tackles – along with sophomore Matt Hoch – to earn praise for his spring performance from coach Gary Pinkel.Honor for Moe
Senior wide receiver T.J. Moe has been named to the Biletnikoff preseason watch list. The award is presented to the nation’s most outstanding receiver. Moe, who caught 54 passes for 649 yards and four touchdowns in 2011, was named to the award’s preseason watch list last year, too.
