COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri center Evan Boehm and running back Russell Hansbrough are questionable for Saturday night's game at Arkansas State.

Boehm and Hansbrough are recovering from right leg injuries from the Tigers' season-opening victory against Southeast Missouri State. They have been wearing medical boots since being treated on the sideline.

Hansbrough was hurt at the end of a 20-yard carry in the first quarter. He finished with two carries for 23 yards.

No. 24 Missouri will have Wesley Leftwich back in the lineup against Arkansas State. The senior wide receiver injured his knee in fall camp, and missed the season opener.

The Tigers also get safety Cortland Browning back this week. He had been nursing a hamstring injury, and will back up Ian Simon for Saturday's game.

Boehm has started 41 consecutive games, and needs 10 more starts to break the school's career starts record.
