No. 25 Missouri to be without WR Blair against Kentucky

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri will be without wide receiver DeSean Blair this Saturday when it opens Southeastern Conference play at Kentucky.

Blair was one of four Tigers players involved in a car accident last Friday near campus, and is out this week with a concussion.

Defensive end Terry Beckner Jr. had two tackles in No. 25 Missouri's 9-6 victory against UConn on Saturday. Blair and fellow receiver Keyon Dilosa missed the game, as well as running back Trevon Walters, who is rehabbing a torn anterior cruciate ligament and was already listed as out indefinitely.

Dilosa, who has three catches for 25 yards for the Tigers (3-0) this season is expected to play against Kentucky.

Russell Hansbrough, who sprained his right ankle in the season-opener, is listed as probable. Coach Gary Pinkel said team doctors will evaluate his status this week. Hansbrough was limited to seven carries for 38 yards through the first two games, and sat out against UConn.
