COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Don't be surprised if Missouri quarterback James Franklin seeks the path of least resistance this fall. He's under orders.

The Tigers were 5-7 in their first season in the SEC, their first without a bowl trip since 2004, and it didn't help matters that Franklin missed four starts and was almost never close to 100 percent. He was still recovering from shoulder surgery when fall workouts began, and during the season was dogged by knee woes, a concussion, cracked rib, broken fingers and a few pulled muscles.

Franklin ran for 15 touchdowns his sophomore year and remains a threat. Coaches, however, would much rather see him scamper out of bounds or execute a stylish slide.
