Missouri’s injury report is piling up.
Redshirt junior defensive end Charles Harris, redshirt junior offensive lineman Nate Crawford and sophomore defensive lineman Nate Howard will all miss the rest of spring practice with a variety of injuries.
Harris, who earned second team All-SEC honors in 2015, underwent surgery on his right labrum on March 29, as reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Dave Matter. Harris led the Tigers with 18.5 tackles for loss and finished sixth on the team with 56 total tackles.
Crawford will miss the remainder of spring after undergoing lower back surgery on Monday, Matter reported. He started eight games at right tackle and left guard last season and was the team’s most improved offensive lineman last spring.
Howard is coming off of left knee tissue repair. He recorded 12 tackles and two tackles for loss as a true freshman a year ago.
The good news is the recovery time for each player doesn’t appear to be too lengthy. Matter reported that all three players are expected to return to the field by the summer.
Matter also reported that sophomore defensive lineman Terry Beckner Jr. is recovering from knee surgery and has been participating in non-contact drills during spring practice.
