Possible QB Controversy Brewing at Missouri

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Don't ask Missouri coach Gary Pinkel if he has a quarterback controversy.

Pinkel affirmed his support for James Franklin after the quarterback threw for only 92 yards in a 31-10 loss at No. 6 South Carolina over the weekend. Missouri gained 255 yards overall, its lowest output since 2009.

Now 9-7 in his career, Franklin returned after missing a week with an inflamed bursa sac in his shoulder and becoming the first Missouri quarterback since 2001 to sit out a game. The 6-2, 228-pound junior says the injury is hurting his confidence and subconsciously making him more tentative on the field.

Missouri plays Saturday at Central Florida.
