Dorial Green-Beckham Injury: Updates on Missouri WR's Ankle, Likely Return Date
Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Missouri fans got some encouraging news regarding the ankle of Dorial Green-Beckham.

The sophomore wide receiver was wearing a walking boot after the Tigers' 48-17 win over Kentucky on Saturday, but Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Green-Beckham will be ready in a week's time:

The injury couldn't have come at a worse time and was the only bad news on an otherwise banner day. Green-Beckham had one of the best receiving days in school history. He caught seven passes for 100 yards and four touchdowns. Those four TDs are a school record, via ESPN Stats and Info:

Luckily, it appears as though the ankle won't be much of an issue going forward.

With the Tigers heading to Oxford for what could be a tricky SEC game against Ole Miss on Nov. 23, it will be important to have a healthy Green-Beckham on the field. Although he's not the most targeted receiver in the Missouri passing game, his explosiveness makes him a key cog in the offense.
