Missouri might get a boost offensively and to its special teams this week when it plays LSU.
Coach Barry Odom said during his weekly radio show that senior running back Alex Ross, a graduate transfer from Oklahoma, should be able to play. Ross suffered an ankle injury against Eastern Michigan two-plus weeks ago and hasn’t played since.
Odom asked on radio show if RB Alex Ross plays at LSU: "I think so. He looked a lot better last night. I'd anticipate him playing."

Ross rushed for 67 yards in the season opener at West Virginia and was expected to be a big part of Missouri’s offense this season after spending four years at Oklahoma, where he earned All-America honors from several publications as a kick returner.
Ross is the Tigers’ fourth-leading rusher despite the time he has missed to this point.
