Missouri Tigers place-kicker Ressel likely out vs. Baylor

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Missouri kicker Grant Ressel likely will miss his second consecutive game with a hip flexor injury.

Coach Gary Pinkel said it's very doubtful that Ressel, a Jackson High School graduate, will be ready for Saturday's game at Baylor.

Ressel has converted nine of his 16 field goal attempts with a long of 47 yards. But he's only 1 of 7 on attempts longer than 40 yards this season.

Punter Trey Barrow again would be the fill-in. Barrow made a 26-yard field goal in his first attempt since high school last week, but missed a 46-yarder at the end of regulation in the Tigers' overtime victory at Texas A&M.
