The Missouri Tigers have a week off perhaps at the perfect time for an important position group to get healthy: Offensive line.

Through the midway point of the season, Mizzou’s front five have impressed to protect quarterbacks Shawn Robinson and Connor Bazelak, though it’s been Bazelak who’s seized the starting role.

But that performance has only come when the Tigers are healthy up front. And Mizzou is banged up. Starting right tackle Larry Borom and left guard Xavier Delgado missed the last game, a loss at Florida. At this point, it’s unclear how healthy the Tigers will look after the week off.

MU coach Eliah Drinkwitz said Borom is at least a few weeks away from being back on the field. Delgado’s status is still uncertain. Borom did not travel to the Florida game, though Delgado did make the trip to Gainesville.

“(Borom is) working as hard as he possibly can to get back but he’s got a lower leg injury,” Drinkwitz said Wednesday on the weekly SEC football coaches’ teleconference. “He’s going to miss some time. He won’t miss the entire season but we’ll get him back when we can get him back, but he’s going to be out a little bit.”
