Farmer says the ankle is a little tender, but will not keep him on the sidelines Saturday aganist Western Illinois. Farmer missed the second half of last season after suffering a broken leg. Coach Larry Smith, who says he will no longer comment on injuries, says Farmer is fine.With the defensive secondary thinned by injury and suspension, Missouri wide receiver Eric Spencer may see some two-way duty this season. Spencer has been practicing at cornerback. Coach Larry Smith says Spencer will concentrate on offense only this week, because Missouri will be missing its top receiver Travis Garvin.
