COLUMBIA, Mo. — Redshirt freshman KJ Jefferson made a surprise start at quarterback in place of eight-game starter Feleipe Franks for the University of Arkansas on Saturday at Missouri.

Sources with knowledge of the situation told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that Franks had a rib injury in practice this week. Franks went through warmups with the other quarterbacks Jefferson, Malik Hornsby and Jack Lindsey.

After taking snaps from center Shane Clenin, Franks had a discussion with Arkansas offensive coordinator Kendal Briles. Then the pair began throwing passes of about 30 yards. Franks appeared to be a little tight around his midsection.

Jefferson, of Sardis, Miss., was making his second career start. The 6-3, 236-pounder started the Razorbacks’ 52-20 loss at No. 1 LSU last year and suffered a shoulder injury.
