Missouri CB Prince leaves team after scary injury

Missouri cornerback Munir Prince is finished with football after

a preseason injury that could cause severe harm if he continues

playing.

Prince was injured in Missouri’s final preseason practice when

he collided with a teammate while covering a punt. He was diagnosed

with transient quadriplegia, a temporary loss of sensation and

movement in the arms and legs. He was hospitalized for two

days.

The St. Louis native and Notre Dame transfer was primarily a

special teams player in 2009. Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said

Prince should have no long-term health risks as a result of the

injury.
