Braylon Webb, Conner McGovern limited as Missouri opens camp

Missouri safety Braylon Webb (9) headed for the end zone after picking off a pass as Murray State Racers wide receiver Josh Brown (86) ran after him during last year’s college football game at Faurot Field in Columbia. Missouri was whistled for defensive holding on the play.

Two Missouri starters were limited participants Monday as preseason training camp opened at Memorial Stadium.

Senior Braylon Webb, the starting strong safety, is nursing a shoulder injury, coach Gary Pinkel said.

Another starter, junior right tackle Connor McGovern, was limited after suffering a strained pectoral muscle in testing.

“Other than that, we’re healthy,” Pinkel said.

Four starters who were injured in the spring — linebacker Kentrell Brothers (torn labrum), running back Russell Hansbrough (torn labrum), defensive tackle Matt Hoch (broken ankle) and wide receiver Darius White (ankle) — were full practice participants.

“If you didn’t see a red pullover on them today, that means they’re 100 percent ready to go,” Pinkel said. “That means, if we’d have had full pads today, they’d have been going full.”
