Injuries Mar Mizzou Spring Scrimmage

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP)- Missouri running back Morgan Steward finished the Tigers’ first scrimmage on the shoulders of offensive linemen Evan Boehm and Connor McGovern after going 58 yards for a touchdown to give the offense a 19-11 win over the defense Saturday.

A 6-foot, 210-pound sophomore, Steward rushed 13 times for 117 yards and three touchdowns. He’s about 3 inches taller and 15 pounds heavier than Russell Hansbrough and Marcus Murphy, who incurred shoulder and ankle sprains, respectively, during the scrimmage.

Missouri’s defense finished with six sacks and two interceptions, mostly against reserve offensive players. Defensive tackle Matt Hoch broke up a pass, but tweeted that he broke a bone in his ankle and would require surgery.

Quarterback Maty Mauk completed 14 of 23 passes for 164 yards and one touchdown.
