COLUMBIA, Mo. • It's been more than a week since Missouri cornerback E.J. Gaines strained the patellar tendon in his left knee last Monday, an injury the team's medical staff initially thought would sideline the senior co-captain for about a week. In Missouri's first practice since Saturday, Gaines participated in some drills today and put himself at about 70 percent, Gary Pinkel said.
