When Missouri takes on South Carolina this Saturday, the team will be out without two key players on the offensive side of the ball.
The Tigers fell short against the Kentucky in Saturday night’s 21-13 loss, but they also lost a few players to injuries. The most notable injured player from the game was linebacker Kentrell Brothers. But the Tigers also lost tight end Sean Culkin and right tackle Nate Crawford.
Regarding Brothers, Pinkel says that it’s a knee/ankle injury and that his status for Saturday is questionable, according to the Kansas City Star’s Tod Palmer.
Culkin and Crawford are two integral parts of the Tigers’ offense, and both are listed as out for Saturday’s game against South Carolina.
At his weekly press conference, coach Gary Pinkel said he knows for certain that Culkin will be out for a couple of weeks, according to the Columbia Daily Tribune’s David Morrison.
This season, Culkin has 12 receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown, while Crawford has started all four games after only playing in two games last season.

Pinkel: Brothers is questionable with knee/ankle injury. Wouldn't say what the plan is if he can't play, but Green played 4Q at Kentucky.
