Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Franklin unlikely to return Saturday for Missouri

The SportsXchange

Missouri coach Gary Pinkel doesn't expect injured quarterback James Franklin to play Saturday against Kentucky.

Franklin had hoped to return this week, but Pinkel told reporters Monday that Franklin hasn't been running during practice. Franklin sprained his left knee in the Tigers' loss to Vanderbilt on Oct. 6. He also has been bothered by a shoulder injury suffered during the spring.

Redshirt freshman Corbin Berkstresser has started in Franklin's place but has completed just 21 of 59 passes for 315 yards and one touchdown in losses to Vanderbilt the Alabama in Missouri's past two games.
