Quarterback Corbin Berkstresser has been reinstated to the Missouri team, the Kansas City Star has reported.

Berkstresser was arrested in mid-May for leaving the scene of an accident after driving into a parked Oldsmobile and leaving. He was suspended from the team, but reinstated after the Columbia police downgraded the charge to a misdemeanour.

Berkstresser is the Tigers’ back-up quarterback, and will be taking reps with current QB James Franklin currently recovering from shoulder surgery. Without him, the Star said, Missouri would have been struggling with quarterbacks, and have had to go to Ashton Glazer

On this, the Star said: “Without him, Mizzou would have been down to its third-string signal caller in Ashton Glazer”. Berkstresser jumped over Glazer in the battle for the back-up spot.
