Mizzou’s Brantley recovering from surgery after car wreck

News of a teammate having non-life threatening injuries, or really any serious injuries at all, and making a big recovery is always good news. The Missouri Tigers got exactly that about defensive lineman Harold Brantley.

According to Missouri Net, Brantley is currently recovering from surgery following a one-car wreck on Sunday in Columbia. He had to have surgery on a fracture in his tibia and also suffered ligament damage in his left knee which will require surgery at a later date.

The best news out of the update is that Brantley is scheduled to be moved out of ICU and into a regular room on Tuesday, meaning that he will be able to receive visitors regularly.

Brantley is expected to make a full recovery and should hopefully be back on the field by season’s start.

The Tigers will surely appreciate having Brantley back on the field after a big 2014 season. He recorded fifty tackles and six sacks for Missouri and helped lead them to their second straight SEC East title and a win in the Citrus Bowl.

We wish Brantley a speedy recovery and hope to see him making big plays for the Tigers in 2015.
