Missouri right tackle Justin Britt will miss the remainder of the season after injuring his right knee against Florida.
The junior starter left the Tigers' loss at No. 7 Florida in the second quarter Saturday. After the game, coach Gary Pinkel speculated that Britt tore the anterior cruciate ligament in the knee. Pinkel said Monday that the extent of the injury will be known when Britt has surgery Oct. 16.
Backup center Brad McNulty is projected to make his third career start this week at Tennessee while Mitch Morse will shift to right tackle.
Britt and freshman left guard Evan Boehm have been the only offensive linemen to start every game for Missouri (4-5, 1-5 Southeastern Conference).

Florida allowed James Franklin and the Missouri offense to put up 335 yards, with 236 coming through the air. The yardage was disappointing for the defense, but the Gators held Missouri to just seven points on the game. The number of yards was helped by the 86 offensive snaps the Tigers ran, but the Florida defense played well whenever Missouri was close to scoring.
