COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- A little more than two years ago, Henry Josey shredded his left knee making a cut. He tore the ACL, MCL and patellar tendon on a 2-yard gain against Texas, an injury so extensive Missouri coach Gary Pinkel thought it looked like his star tailback had been in an automobile accident.

It was serious enough that Texas coach Mack Brown crossed the field at a hushed Faurot Field to pay respect.

In the SEC championship game Saturday, No. 3 Auburn will see a player who’s made it all the way back.

Coaches and teammates couldn’t have been more pleased that the 5-foot-9, 190-pound junior got a chance to really stretch his legs on the go-ahead touchdown late in the victory over Texas A&M that wrapped up the SEC East.
