COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- No. 15 Missouri expects linebacker Will Ebner back from a neck injury this week at Iowa State.
Ebner was a late scratch before Saturday's victory over Kansas State, leading the Tigers to give safety Jarrell Harrison playing time at that position.
Ebner and cornerback Kevin Rutland, who has been bothered by a lower back strain, were both listed as probable on Monday.
Linebacker Luke Lambert was already ruled out for the fifth straight game with a knee injury. He's been limited to three games with 17 tackles and a sack.
