Mizzou RB Josey to enter NFL Draft
Tue, 07 Jan 2014 20:40:46 GMT —
Missouri running back Henry Josey announced Tuesday that he will skip his senior season and enter the NFL Draft.
Josey missed all of 2012 with a knee injury, but rebounded in 2013 to finish 1,166 yards rushing. He scored three touchdowns in Missouri's 41-31 win over Oklahoma State in the Cotton Bowl.
Josey is just the second running back in Missouri history to post two 1,000-yard seasons. He ran for 1,168 yards and nine touchdowns as a sophomore in 2011 before suffering a season-ending injury against Texas.
Josey is the second Tiger to declare for the NFL Draft early. Defensive end Kony Ealy announced he would enter the NFL Draft on Friday night.
