GLENDALE, ARIZONA (KMOV)-Missouri star DeMarre Carroll injured his ankle this afternoon at the Tigers' workout at University of Phoenix Stadium. He went down in a heap immediately, and the practice came to a screeching halt. Carroll addressed the injury in the post-workout press conference and said, "I just tweaked it a bit." But, naturally, Tiger fans are scared that Carroll could be covering up for a more severe injury...or, even if he does play, he won't be the same guy who led Missouri to a 30-win season. However, I'm told tonight by a Missouri source that Carroll is completely fine, and "he could play right now if the game were tonight."
