Well, some good news for Mizzou fans here. CBSSports.com's Doug Gottlieb took time away from his Super Bowl duties down in New Orleans to tweet that a source informed him of Laurence Bowers' return to Missouri.
Bowers went down Jan. 8 (seen above) in a home game against Alabama. He's missed Missouri's past five games. The Tigers are 3-2 in that stretch and spun from a No. 10 to a No. 17 ranking in the AP poll.

The Tigers of Missouri will certainly be a factor near the top of the league, but at this point, with Florida 16-2, 6-0 in the league and holding opponents to 48.1 points per game in SEC play, it's fair to say everybody's playing for second.
Bowers, a fifth-year senior who missed all of last season with a torn ACL in his other knee, is averaging 16.8 points and 6.9 rebounds.
