The two Missouri players suffered the injuries in last Saturday’s loss to Middle Tennessee.
Scherer, a senior, was the team’s leading tackler through seven games, collecting 53 tackles.
This is Beckner’s second knee injury — this time occurring on the opposite leg. The sophomore suffered a torn ACL and MCL against BYU last season on Nov. 14.
In seven games this season, Beckner has accumulated 24 tackles and two tackles for loss. He received 2015 Freshman All-SEC honors last season as a 5-star recruit out of East. St. Louis.
