The aftermath of Missouri's loss to Georgia continues to get worse as left tackle Elvis Fisher and outside linebacker Zaviar Gooden have been ruled out for Saturday's game against Arizona State.

This news was revealed in the Tigers latest depth chart. Fisher injured his MCL in the first half and didn't return. He will not have surgery, but there is no timetable for his return.

The injury shuffles the offensive line. Justin Britt shifts from right to left tackle to fill into Fisher's spot. Mitch Morse, who played center the first two games, finds a new role as right tackle. Brad McNulty gets promoted to starting center.

Gooden will be out after picking up a hamstring injury. Donovan Bonner will get the nod at weak side linebacker on Saturday.

The other highlight in the new depth chart is Brad Madison being elevated to starting defensive end over Kony Ealy. Madison had two sacks against Georgia; one of the positives for Mizzou.
