Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel believes starting quarterback James Franklin will miss three-to-five weeks with a separated right shoulder, according to Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

On Saturday, it was reported that Franklin would be done for the rest of the regular season with the injury, but Pinkel characterized these report as "wrong as usual", also telling reporters that if the injury had occurred to the QB's non-throwing shoulder, he would only be out for one week.
