Missouri quarterback James Franklin is listed as the starter on the depth chart, but is questionable for Saturday’s game at Texas A&M with a concussion. The junior sustained the head injury in the fourth quarter last week against Syracuse. If Franklin can’t play, Corbin Berkstresser will get the starting nod.
The other highlight of the most recent depth chart is that defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson will return to the field after a one game suspension. Richardson has been the best player on the Tigers defense and he will need to have a special game against Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Text I just received from LSW LB Nick Ramirez: “I have officially decommitted from the university of Missouri.”

Ramirez is a four-star inside linebacker prospect on Rivals. The Lee’s Summit, Missouri native is ranked third in the state for the class of 2013.
Scantlebury said Ramirez is visting Kansas State on December 1, and that Texas Tech and Ohio State have shown interest. Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star said Ramirez still plans on visiting Mizzou in January.
