Back in November of 2014, Morgan Steward sustained a hip injury during the early portion of Missouri’s summer camp. Steward at the time Steward said of his injury, “[m]y hip joint popped out of place, tore things around, pulled off some of the bone.”
He was out until camp the following year, and managed to play the first three games of 2015 before he was shut down for the remainder of the year. Now in February, he’s shut it down permanently as Mizzou confirmed that Steward is retiring from football.
Steward was thought of as a back that could carry a significant load in 2016, but his body said otherwise. All is not for naught though, as Steward already has completed his degree in business communications.
