Missouri coach Barry Odom has provided an update on running back Damarea Crockett.
On Monday, the Tigers coach told reporters that Crockett is out this week with a shoulder injury for Missouri’s game against Connecticut. However, Odom left open the possibility that Crockett will return later this season.
ODOM: Damarea Crockett out this week (shoulder). Hopeful for his return later this season, but preparing in case he's not.

Last Saturday, it was revealed that Crockett has surgery Friday.
Crockett has been the program’s featured running back throughout most of the past two seasons, even setting the program record for most rushing yards by a freshman in 2016. He has 80 carries for 481 yards with 2 touchdowns this season.
The Tigers are coming off a 68-21 victory against Idaho last Saturday.
