COLLEGE FOOTBALL QB REPORT
Missouri starting QB Brady Cook (Stats) was pictured practicing with a knee brace in a post from the team Twitter account. Cook did not practice on Tuesday after suffering the knee injury last week during the second quarter. He finished the game despite being limited running the ball. If he is unavailable, Sam Horn (Stats) will be the guy for Saturday night’s game against Memphis.
Virginia Tech head coach Brent Pry said QB Grant Wells (Stats) is still limited in practice with an ankle injury that forced him to miss Week 3. Earlier this week, Pry did not reveal whether Grant or Kyron Drones (Stats) would start if Wells is available to play on Saturday against Marshall. He also added true freshman quarterback William “Pop” Watson III (Stats) is suspended indefinitely after violating team rules.
Virginia offensive coordinator Des Kitchings said a starting QB decision has not been made, though Tony Muskett’s (Stats) shoulder has made progress after missing the last two games. Anthony Colandrea (Stats) would get another start on Saturday night against NC State if Muskett is unavailable.
DEPTH CHART & INJURY REPORT
Alabama QBs Jalen Milroe (Stats), Tyler Buchner (Stats), Ty Simpson (Stats) and Dylan Lonergan (Stats) are listed as co-starters on this week’s depth chart, though Nick Saban said Milroe will start on Saturday against Ole Miss. Milroe started the first two games before Buchner and Simpson saw work in Week 3.
