Nate Strong

Running back Nate Strong has left the Missouri football team, Gabe DeArmond of PowerMizzou.com reported Tuesday morning. Strong quit Sept. 1, a day before Missouriís season opener against Missouri State.

Strong, a junior out of East St. Louis, was Missouriís fourth-string running back, behind sophomore Damarea Crockett, senior Ish Witter and freshman Larry Rountree III. Strong was slowed during fall camp with a knee injury.

PowerMizzou reported that Strong left the team because he wasnít named the starting tailback.

Strong was suspended in spring camp for violating team rules. He served his suspension and returned to the team almost a month later.

He helped the Tigers late in the 2016 season, scoring two touchdowns in Missouriís victory over Arkansas. For the season, he rushed for 137 yards on 32 carries.

Supervising editor is Pete Bland: blandp@missouri.edu, 882-5729.
