 COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -Missouri safety Cornelius ``Pig'' Brown ruptured his right Achilles' tendon in the fourth quarter of Saturday's 42-28 victory over Iowa State, a big blow to the Tigers' improving defense.
Brown, a senior, was carted off the field late in the game after coming up lame while pursuing a play. Twice this season he has been Big 12 player of the week. He had 10 tackles, one for a 5-yard loss, before the injury.
``It's going to hurt,'' quarterback Chase Daniel said. ``He's a captain, he's a leader and he's been playing unbelievably well these last three or four weeks.
``To lose him would be a big blow but that's why we have depth. We'll adjust.''
Brown, who joined the program as a California junior college product last year, was the conference player of the week for the second time last week. In a 41-10 victory over Texas Tech, he had 14 tackles, 4 1/2 of them for a loss, an interception and two pass breakups.
He moved into the starting lineup this year after getting one start as a junior. Del Howard, a sophomore who switched to safety from cornerback this season, would likely replace him.
