Mizzou football will be without tight end Niko Hea, defensive tackle Akial Byers and safety Martez Manuel, they’ve have been ruled out against Army tomorrow. Mizzou releases their participation list prior to each game with no explanation as to why players will be out. The Tigers with enter the Armed Forces Bowl without their top three tight ends they had at the start of the season with Daniel Parker and Messiah Swinson transferring.
Manuel is Mizzou’s leading tackler and Byers started ten of the 12 games. The Tigers will also be without starting cornerback Akayleb Evans who is opting out to prepare for the NFL Draft.
Thank you for a special season Mizzou fans.💔 Sorry I can’t play for you guys one last time. I will be leading in a different way this week. Love you all. https://t.co/ursZ6TsKZl
