Henry Josey Injury: Updates on Missouri RB's Status, Return After Late Hit
Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Missouri Tigers running back Henry Josey exited Saturday's SEC Championship Game against Auburn in the third quarter with an undisclosed injury, after Auburn's Ryan White shoved him into a sideline cart after he was out of bounds.

CBS Sports' Eye on College Football Twitter account reported on the matter, noting that Josey's run set up a touchdown run by Missouri quarterback James Franklin on the next play:

Eye on College Football later reported that Josey did return:

Bleacher Report injury expert Will Carroll remarked that Josey may have injured his back:

Will Brinson of CBSSports.com cited reporter Tracy Wolfson, who said that Josey was being bandaged but was eager to get back onto the Georgia Dome gridiron:

Josey has been overshadowed by his Auburn counterpart Tre Mason's record-setting performance in this game, but the Mizzou runner did have nine carries for 123 yards before leaving the field.

The junior entered this game with 13 rushing touchdowns in 2013 and eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark for the season with his impressive showing against Auburn. It will be interesting to see if Josey can contribute any further to what has turned out to be a shootout in Atlanta.
