COLUMBIA, Missouri (AP) -- Just like last season, Missouri begins fall workouts way under the radar.

The Tigers are coming off a 12-win season and SEC Eastern division title, but must replace numerous key players including NFL draft picks Kony Ealy, Justin Britt, E.J. Gaines and Michael Sam. James Franklin, a three-year starter at quarterback, and running back Henry Josey are among nine players in all at NFL training camps.

Coach Gary Pinkel set the school career record for victories last season and entering his 14th season believes there's plenty of depth. There are 11 returning starters counting both specialists, five on defense.

The team practiced at Faurot Field with temperatures hovering around 90 degrees Monday afternoon.

Before media was escorted off the field just shy of the halfway mark, coaches could be heard barking over occasional buzzing from construction crews working on a new upper deck added when the school joined the SEC.
