Mizzou's Franklin knocked out of game due to injury


(AP) - Missouri starting quarterback James Franklin has left the Tigers' SEC game against Vanderbilt with a left knee sprain.


Franklin completed 5 of 9 passes for 56 yards before leaving the game in the first quarter with a 6-0 Missouri lead.


He was replaced by backup Corbin Berkstresser, who has completed just 1 of 8 passes as Missouri trails Vanderbilt 9-6 at the half.


A team spokesman says Franklin will not return to the game.


The junior sat out one game earlier this season after injuring his throwing shoulder in a home loss to Georgia.


Backup running back Marcus Murphy also left the game early with a dislocated right ring finger.


Starting middle linebacker Will Ebner is also not playing, though the team did not say why.
