Missouri Tigers quarterback Brady Cook is playing through a knee sprain against the No. 15 Kansas State Wildcats, according to the game broadcast. Cook has been tremendous in this contest for the Tigers, who are hoping to spring the upset and get what would be the biggest win in Eli Drinkwitz’s tenure in Columbia.

Cook is 10-14 for 194 yards and a touchdown as the Tigers are tied with the Wildcats 17-17 in the third quarter. The veteran has often been criticized for his inability to hit big throws but he’s connected on a few key plays Saturday, including a 47-yard touchdown strike to Luther Burden. However, Cook’s ability to run will be limited with this knee sprain and takes away a significant component of Mizzou’s offense. We’ll see how the Tigers navigate Cook’s injury as the game goes on, but for now he’s staying in.
