4 Missouri football players injured in car accident
Four Missouri football players sustained injuries in a car accident around 4 p.m. on Friday.
Terry Beckner Jr. and Keyon Dilosa were treated at the scene and released, while DeSean Blair and and Trevon Walters were transported to the University Hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries, according to The Columbia Tribune’s David Morrison. All four player’s statuses for Saturday’s game against UConn are still being determined, Morrison reports.
Beckner was driving one car, and struck a vehicle that a female driver and two children occupied. The woman and children were also transported to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening conditions, according to Morrison.
Beckner, a former 5-star prospect out of East St. Louis High School, has served as a backup defensive tackle for the Tigers this season while collecting four total tackles and a tackle for loss in his first two games. Blair and Dilosa are both backup wide receivers and have a combined four catches for 46 yards on the season. Walters is a redshirt freshman and hasn’t played this season, as he is rehabbing from a torn ACL.
