Ankle injury occurred in win over Kansas

Nov. 26, 2007

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri tight end Chase Coffman has an ankle injury and is questionable for Saturday's Big 12 championship game against No. 9 Oklahoma.

Coffman, the career leader in touchdown passes for the top-ranked Tigers, missed the second half of Missouri's 36-28 win over then-No. 2 Kansas this past Saturday.

"He will be in a boot until Wednesday morning, then he'll practice Wednesday and Thursday," coach Gary Pinkel said Monday on a conference call. "We think he'll be back, but he would certainly be questionable at this time."

Coffman is Missouri's third-leading receiver with 51 catches for 523 yards and seven touchdowns this season. He holds the school record with 20 TD catches.
