Missouri QB Kelly Bryant Exits Game With Leg Injury

Publish date:

Missouri quarterback Kelly Bryant exited Saturday's game against Troy with a leg injury after taking a late hit below his left knee. 

Bryant extended the Tigers' lead to 42–7 before halftime after throwing a six-yard touchdown pass to Jalen Knox. After he connected with Knox, Troy defensive tackle Travis Sailo took Bryant out with a tackle. Bryant immediately fell to the ground and grabbed his knee in pain. Sailo was flagged for roughing the passer.

Missouri announced at the start of the second half that Bryant would miss the rest of the game with a left leg injury. Taylor Powell entered the game in Bryant's absence.

Bryant finished the game going 12 for 19 with 221 yards and three touchdowns, and he rushed for an additional score in the first quarter.

In December 2018, he transferred from Clemson to Missouri as a graduate transfer for the 2019 season. Bryant's decision came after he was replaced in September 2018 by true freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who led Clemson to the 2019 national championship.
