COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -Missouri tight end Chase Coffman, said his injured toe is ``about 80 percent'' as the Tigers prepared to face No. 4 Oklahoma in the Big 12 title game.
Despite having turf toe for a month, Coffman still managed six catches for 53 yards and two touchdowns in last weekend's 40-37 upset loss to Kansas, even after immediately aggravating the injury on the game's first play.
``We all know what a healthy, 100 percent, Chase Coffman is,'' Pinkel said. ``By the way, an 80-percent Chase isn't bad. Maybe he'll do better after the experience of playing and doing better with it. There are some things you have to work through.''
Coffman's injured foot kept him out of last season's title game, but he'll be able to build on his stellar senior season Saturday against the Sooners (11-1, 7-1 Big 12).
The tight end has 79 receptions for 872 yards and nine touchdowns this season.
``Toughness counts for a lot but you have to go out there and not think about it, just try and make plays at the same time,'' he said.
