Missouri might redshirt linebacker Ebner
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri is considering redshirting linebacker Will Ebner, sidelined by a high ankle sprain in the opener, and will appeal for a medical redshirt for offensive tackle Elvis Fisher.
Coach Gary Pinkel said Monday it would be a couple weeks before Ebner would be able to return. Fisher ruptured the patellar tendon in his left knee during preseason workouts.
Guard Austin Wuebbels (sprained shoulder) is questionable for Saturday's game against Iowa State. Pinkel said tailbacks Kendial Lawrence (leg) and De'Vion Moore (ankle) are back to full health.
Lawrence had 5 yards on six carries in last week's loss at Kansas State. Moore dressed but did not play.
