COLUMBIA, Missouri -- Despite suffering a sprained right ankle in Thursday's loss to Nebraska, Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert should start in Saturday's matchup at Oklahoma State.
Head coach Gary Pinkel said Monday that Gabbert and cornerback Carl Gettis have ankle sprains, but that they are "probable."
Gabbert was hurt in the first quarter after being sacked by Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh but finished the game, which Nebraska won 27-12. But all indications are that he'll take the field for the Tigers in Stillwater on Saturday.
Reserve linebacker Will Ebner, one of the Tigers biggest hitters, underwent arthroscopic knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus Monday, and could be ready to return the lineup as soon as Oct. 24, when Mizzou takes on Texas.
