Missouri defensive end Markus Golden misses start against Indiana because of hamstring injury

Missouri defensive end Markus Golden injured his left hamstring in practice this week and did not start against Indiana (1-1) on Saturday.

The senior is considered "day to day," according to a team spokesman.

Golden appeared on the field before the game wearing a gray shirt and black athletic shorts. He gave a hug to defensive line coach Craig Kuligowski while the rest of the position group participated in drills.

Golden entered the day ranked fifth nationally in both tackles for loss (6½) and sacks (4.0). Teammate Shane Ray led the country with 7½ tackles for loss and ranked third in sacks (5.0).

Redshirt freshman Charles Harris is making his first career start in place of Golden for the No. 18 Tigers (3-0).
