The resurgence of the Missouri Tigers has coincided with the amazing comeback of running back  Henry Josey. The a junior back from Angleton, Texas had missed nearly two years of football, including the entire 2012 season, after his knee was shredded during a victory against the Texas Longhorns on Nov. 12, 2011.

Josey required multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament, a torn medial collateral ligament and a torn patellar tendon. Needless to say, it was a longshot he’d ever resume his football career.

Back and better than ever, Josey the Tiger’s leading rusher with 647 yards and eight touchdowns and has helped Mizzou ascend atop the SEC East. But a concussion suffered two weeks ago almost prevented him from playing last week vs the Tennessee Volunteers.
