VIDEO: Kelly Bryant Suffers Scary-Looking Knee Injury After Controversial Low Hit by Troy Defender

This is about as blatant of a cheap shot as you'll find in modern college football. With the game already in hand against Troy near halftime (Mizzou held a 42-7 lead at the time), Kelly Bryant dropped back to pass, only to take a late hit to his knees which forced the former Clemson Tiger out of the game. The play was obviously flagged, but Missouri fans surely won't take solace in that given Bryant's injury status.

Bryant's pass was completed for a touchdown to Jalen Knox, extending the Missouri lead in the process. We can only assume Barry Odom didn't intend to keep Bryant in the game long past halftime. However, the damage has already been done, and we can only hope the Tigers' prized transfer won't miss significant time.

Either way, Bryant is unlikely to return to this game even should he prove to be healthy in the locker room.
